How Satellite Monitoring Can Prevent Deforestation in the Palm Oil Value Chain

Great progress has been made in recent years in the sustainability and traceability of palm oil. But there is much more still to do, with new solutions being constantly developed. One such technological advancement already helping with deforestation prevention and wildlife protection is satellite monitoring.

This technology is helping to fill the gap between what happens day-to-day on the ground in palm oil plantations, and what is reported officially by producing companies. This helps to ensure that claims made by farmers and producers are backed up by evidence, and that ultimately, customers can have greater confidence when buying products containing palm oil.
