Research Profundo: Dutch Financing of Forest- Risk Sectors

An analysis bij Profundo of financial links with key sectors driving forest loss. This report has been commissioned by Milieudefensie – Friends of the Earth Netherlands.

The Dutch economy is linked to deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions caused in the global South during the production of carbon-intensive primary commodities for Dutch consumption. Moreover, Dutch companies can be directly involved in foreign operations which drive deforestation. A third factor and the focus of this research is the role of Dutch financial institutions in financing companies which run the risk of being directly or indirectly involved in deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics and subtropics.
