Information wins campaigns
This simple truth led us to form Stand.earth Research Group. Using supply chain research, real-time geospatial analysis, predictive modeling, and other data-driven techniques, we keep governments accountable to their environmental commitments, monitor industry emissions over time, and reveal clear connections between major brands and deforestation-driver commodities, oil and gas, and other irresponsibly produced raw materials.
Breakthroughs often happen when a secret is exposed—when a company is linked to a controversial issue such as illegal logging or deforestation in the Amazon. Such conversation-shifting research is our specialty.
Our team identifies and tracks raw materials as they move through complex supply chains and eventually become consumer products. We specialize in tracing environmental destruction and human rights violations all the way from source to end use. Armed with this data, our clients and allies hold corporate actors accountable.
Our team creates sophisticated, interactive visualizations that connect the dots between popular consumer brands, manufacturing facilities around the world, and ongoing harm to the environment. Translating millions upon millions of data points into engaging visual stories, we turn raw information into a powerful motivational tool.
By identifying the exact size, scope, and nature of the crises that our clients work to solve—and pinpointing companies’ potential to change their behavior in impactful ways—we bridge the gap between research and implementation.
