In partnership with United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI), the Climate Collaborative is thrilled to share three case studies focused on the forest action efforts of Nature's Path, Traditional Medicinals, and Tony's Chocolonely. UNFI and the Climate Collaborative are deeply committed to accelerating the efforts of the grocery industry to stop deforestation and forest degradation, and to support reforestation efforts. According to the IPCC, “reducing deforestation and forest degradation rates represents one of the most effective and robust options for climate change mitigation, with large mitigation benefits globally.” Forests and climate change are deeply connected, as forest loss and degradation are both a cause and effect of climate change.
"Our hope is to inspire and inform company action by sharing the pioneering work of Nature's Path, Traditional Medicinals, and Tony's Chocolonely in support of forests and the communities that depend on them. Eliminating deforestation and forest degradation is absolutely critical in our fight against climate change" says Courtney Pineau, Executive Director of the Climate Collaborative.
