This year, we teamed up with the EcoVision Lab of ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) to jointly develop a satellite based system that can monitor land use change and deforestation. This tool is the first of its kind looking to implement such an approach at a large scale, automatically. Once finalized, we will make the methodology publicly available. Most importantly, it will allow us to hold our suppliers accountable at a different level.
