Forest and Finance

This website aims to highlight the role that finance plays in enabling tropical deforestation. It is the result of extensive research and investigations by a coalition of campaign and research organisations including Rainforest Action Network, TuK INDONESIA, and Profundo. Collectively, these organisations and their allies seek to achieve improved financial sector policies and systems that prevent financial institutions from supporting the kind of environmental and social abuses that are all too common in the operations of their forest-risk sector clients.

Fire and Finance

This website aims to provide information on the financiers behind the companies that are responsible for the fires. The financial data is provided by our forestsandfinance.org website and the fire data is sourced from the Global Forest Watch website.
