Rapid Response Monitoring System

Mighty Earth’s Rapid Response program is stopping deforestation in its tracks. Each month, we combine satellite imagery with supply chain data to determine the global agribusinesses responsible for new cases of deforestation driven by the palm oil, soy, and cattle industries. Then we move quickly to hold those companies accountable and ensure they enforce their environmental policies before more damage is done.
