dc.description<p>Hidden in the food we buy every day, from chocolate to ice cream, are commodities like palm oil and soy that are driving deforestation across the world. From Indonesia to the Peruvian Amazon, vast areas of carbon-rich forest are being cleared to produce these agricultural commodities, contributing to climate change and social conflict.</p> <p>Several food and beverage companies have made commitments over the last few years to tackle deforestation in their supply chains. This paper analyses how the world's ten biggest food and beverage companies - which were challenged to improve their environmental and social policies as part of Oxfam's Behind the Brands campaign - are implementing their commitments to eliminate deforestation from their supply chains. It argues that while this is a significant step forward, these companies must now implement their promises. They must translate policies into practice and strengthen their efforts to protect the rights and livelihoods of the communities and indigenous peoples on the frontlines of defending the world's forests to achieve real change.</p>en_US
