We advocate for the collection of transparent data among companies and governments. Our approach is twofold: we create innovative tools, and we support transparent and traceable systems that detect and deter environmental crime. Consumers are increasingly becoming aware of the issue of illegally sourced goods, which has resulted in an increased demand to know the origin of the products they buy. We believe people deserve to know where products come from, and how product origins impact the world.
Effective transparency systems are designed to provide appropriate and differentiated access to supply chain information for companies, government technicians, enforcement officials, and the public, while also protecting sensitive information as needed. Traceability enables the linking of a product through multiple owners and various stages of production. Transparent, traceable supply chains will give companies and consumers confidence that their products were sourced legally, and the ability to better assess the sustainable and ethical manners in which these products were produced.
