In this chapter, Natalie Walker discuss supply chain solutions to deforestation. International corporations have adopted zero-deforestation policies in groups, but can they actually make a difference? There has been research to understand the changes that happen after companies adopt these policies. Deforestation has higher impacts on emissions production than cattle rumination, and forests like the Amazon play a key role in global weather patterns. Cattle ranching is the largest driver of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon, and this is discussed at length, as well as two options for cattle ranchers to practice deforestation, which are leaking and laundering.
