Producers hold the key to halt biodiversity loss
Dutch demand for products from tropical regions is influential in the rapid decline of local plant and animal species (biodiversity) in those regions. These are not only products such as palm oil, coffee, wood, or soy for animal feed, but also meat and fish, all delivered to us via trade chains. Some of these products are consumed directly, while others are used in the production of export goods. Examples of such exported end products are wood products and meat (with imported animal feed used in the production of the latter). Therefore, producers hold an important key to halt biodiversity loss by making their trade chains more sustainable.
