World Resources Institute - Global Forest Watch Commodities Platform Includes RSPO Concession Maps
In early 2014 the World Resource Institute - WRI , Google and partners launched an online forest monitoring system that enables real-time tracking of deforestation. Detailed public maps of RSPO certified palm oil concessions have now been added to the platform, showing exactly where RSPO certified palm is produced.
The maps will be accessible via the GFW-Commodities online platform, empowering companies to research the impact of key commodities on forests.
"We are starting to see a remarkable shift as new technology is encouraging companies to share information and work collaboratively to improve forest management. The RSPO and its member companies are now leading the palm oil industry towards greater transparency,” Dr. Andrew Steer, President & CEO, WRI
