Norway Becomes The World's First Country To Commit To Zero Deforestation
Climate change is looming large and world is getting closer to a point of no return, at a time when collective action is missing and collective focus of Nations on climate change lacks purpose, Norway has taken the onus to lead the way in making our world a better place by taking the pledge and commitment to ensure zero deforestation. The MPs have enforced rules for supply chain management to ensure there is no deforestation. This is in line with 2014 UN Climate Summit to “promote national commitments that encourage deforestation-free supply chains, including through public procurement policies to sustainably source commodities such as palm oil, soy, beef, and timber”.
