The economic, social, and environmental impacts of deforestation can be drastic. Often the result of poor land management and illegal logging, deforestation ends in loss of critical habitat for wildlife, loss in government revenues, and distortion of global markets. Real estate companies have reported deforestation as a risk for client loss and overvaluation of land portfolios from sustainability impacts.1 As many markets move towards zero-deforestation, companies and institutions look to technological solutions like UP42 to assess and verify their sustainability initiatives, prevent equity value loss, and avert reputation damage.
