The new Trase platform for supply chain transparency developed by SEI and the Global Canopy Programme (GCP) has attracted growing media coverage since its launch at COP22 last year.
Trase maps the international supply chains of commodities associated with high levels of tropical deforestation, identifying the traders and other actors involved in the supply chain, as well as the size and origin of commodity flows. It is powerful tool for companies, governments and others working to eliminate deforestation and other unsustainable practices along commodity supply chains.
