AIM signs Investor Statement on Deforestation and Forest Fires in the Amazon

Given the critical events affecting the Amazonian Forest of late, AIM has become a signatory to the UN PRI’s Investor Statement on Deforestation and Forest Fires in the Amazon. The extent of recent forest fires is above seasonal averages, which increases the risk for climate, biodiversity and food security. Through this statement, signatories call on exposed companies to eliminate deforestation from within their operations and supply chains. It builds on the important work carried out so far by the UN PRI’s Investor Working Group on Sustainable Forests.
