Tropical Forest Trust
Tropical Forest Trust is an organization based in Portland, Oregon.
"We focus on products and supply chains to bring about sustainable development. That's because we believe this is where the most concrete and powerful solutions can be found in the interest of all society’s stakeholders.
To help communities and companies deliver Responsible Products and transform product stories we act on the ground; we influence product stories from extraction to disposal in forests, farms, mines, factories and retail stores.
While our work impacts every stage of the supply chain, our main focus is at the extraction stage. This is where often the most controversial part of a product story takes place, where the impact of products on people and the environment is often at its greatest and environmental and social issues are at their most complex. Our foresters, agronomists and social experts work together with companies and communities to change local dynamics towards the responsible use of natural resources."
