What We Do
95% of Brazil’s deforestation is illegal
CCCA uses the combined power of the law, data and analysis to make it stop.
PERU EXPERIENCED THE GREATEST PRIMARY FOREST LOSS RELATED TO PALM OIL IN THE AMAZON REGION
CCCA supports strategic initiatives to convey a message against the prevailing impunity on historical cases of large-scale deforestation linked to palm oil.
In the last 5 years, the tree cover loss of the Colombian Amazon amounted over 841,000 ha, the size of 1.5 million football stadiums
CCCA analyses the main forest-risk commodities to discourage actors that facilitate deforestation through their supply chains and investments.
Rapid reduction of methane emissions is the strategy with the greatest potential to decrease global warming in the short term. Yet, it is largely overlooked.
Methane emissions are responsible for about 30% of current warming but they are difficult to track and measure. Now that technical data is improving, CCCA is translating it into concrete action.
