Launch of Global Forest Watch


Nestlé supports Global Forest Watch (GFW), an online transparent mapping application providing data about what is happening in forests worldwide. GFW is intended for use by stakeholders in the world’s forests who seek to better manage forests and improve local livelihoods.

This application permits companies to know exactly what is happening in their supply chains without physically being on the ground and to see and address who might be contributing to deforestation among its suppliers by mapping global "hot-spots".

This initiative is part of the commitments made in 2010 in favour of tracking the source of our products.
