Opportunities

If we can reduce our own impacts on tropical forest through sustainable purchasing, while working with other countries to help set them on a path towards zero deforestation, we can protect our own economy, improve the livelihoods and environments in other countries, and potentially triple the impact we are having on fighting climate change.

Californians have five key opportunities to help tropical forests:

  1. Reduce deforestation in California
  2. Use cap-and-trade to fight international deforestation
  3. Reduce consumption of products responsible for deforestation
  4. Support forest-friendly purchasing
  5. Develop and share technologies to track and combat deforestation
