The UK has a huge deforestation footprint across the world.
A big part of this footprint is created by UK businesses, including financial institutions, pouring billions of pounds into the destruction of our forests, vital to mitigate climate breakdown.
But the good news is that the UK can also make a huge difference in protecting the planet, biodiversity and leading on a green recovery from COVID-19: the Environment Bill currently making its way through Parliament, is an opportunity to tackle the UK’s global deforestation footprint.
Help us ask the government to:
- Create sustainable supply chains: The products we consume should be deforestation-free.
- Stop the money flowing from UK-based financial institutions into deforestation
In the next step, add your voice and ask Ministers to use the Environment Bill to tackle the UK's deforestation footprint.
