Starling

A report by Forest Trends highlighted that the number of companies making commitments to eradicate deforestation rose by 22% to 447 between 2016 and 2017.

Prior to Starling, verifying progress of these commitments had been challenging, with brands and producers relying on ground-based checks by auditing firms. The costs, scale and frequency of these audits is a significant limitation for ensuring that deforestation is eliminated from the supply chain.

The Supply Chain Initiative reports that commercial agriculture for palm, soy, cattle, timber and pulp is responsible for at least two-thirds of global deforestation. Therefore, companies making forest conservation pledges have been asking for a reliable verification tool in order to prove that they are making tangible progress on their commitments. Starling provides exactly that.
