Deforestation monitoring for a more robust, sustainable supply chain
Powered by remote sensing, machine learning, and the fusion of multiple datasets, our deforestation monitoring service enables high frequency visibility across your entire supply chains.
Descartes Labs deploys deforestation monitoring with a unique multi-model approach that ensures higher quality detections while also providing critical contextual data, such as forest carbon loss per event. This unique deforestation alerting solution does not rely on just one technique, thereby reducing risk for deforestation-free commitments and regulatory compliance.
Who we serve
Measure and mitigate deforestation risk ahead of regulations
Providing value for those in supply chain management, carbon asset management, as well as equity ratings.
Supply Chain Manager
Better source ingredients sustainably while adhering to deforestation-free regulations. Supply chain assets combined with deforestation alerts can be used to assess sourcing regions at greatest risk of compromising deforestation-free commitments. Our service can also be used to create due diligence reporting, such as those required by the EU Deforestation Free Regulation, which serves to de-risk the breaching of commitments and regulations.
Carbon Project Managers
Gain insights to monitor the impact a project might have on carbon leakage via deforestation displacement. Obtain visibility on carbon credits impaired by deforestation activity and immediately work on securing new carbon credits while mitigating the associated reputational risk.
Equity Ratings Agencies and Firms
Readily available, scalable and cost-effective analysis tools work in conjunction with a corporation's existing ratings packages to allow the creation of differentiated supply chain ratings.
Higher accuracy monitoring at industry leading speeds
Quickly receive trustworthy alerts from any tropical region in the world

To identify regions that are truly forest and therefore should be monitored for forest loss events, Descartes Labs employs our novel technique with deep learning intelligence. The end result is an annually updated forest map that is the basis of our Deforestation Monitoring service.
It is critical to also identify areas of agricultural production to ensure that managed tree loss events within those plots are not mischaracterized as deforestation. Descartes Labs has generated our own palm commodity mask and has experience integrating external commodity masks, such as cocoa.
Real-Time Deforestation Alerts & Metadata
Stay on top of supply chain issues using our real time alerts updated on a monthly basis and contextualized with critical information such as the date of loss, area affected, deforestation rate, alert priority, and forest carbon lost.
Historical Deforestation Monitoring Alerts
Updated on an annual basis, our historical alerts provide a second pass on the real time alerts using a different modeling technique, adding confidence to our alerts that only a multi-model approach can bring.
Multimodel Validated Alerts
Instill the highest confidence with the combined validation of our real-time and historical alerts.
Get a broader view of your sustainable supply chain.
Combine deforestation monitoring with our Forest Carbon Analytics service to assess the impact of carbon projects on surrounding regions to monitor carbon leakage concerns that may arise as a result of the project operations.
