Stand.earth Research Group specializes in chain of custody research, identifying and tracking raw materials as they move through complex supply chains and eventually become consumer products. We trace environmental destruction and human rights violations all the way from source to end use. Armed with this powerful data, our clients and allies are able to hold corporate actors accountable to change their practices and, ultimately, drive changes in government policies.
Our fee-for-service work can be shaped and scaled to meet your needs — whether it’s initial scoping, laser focus, or a multi-year, sweeping investigation.
Our work has helped to shift the practices or procurement policies of some of the biggest companies in the world, including Starbucks, 3M, Kimberly-Clark, Limited Brands, Staples, Disney, Nestlé and countless others. These shifts have led towards forest protection initiatives in critical ecosystems around the world and supported movements to keep fossil fuels in the ground, including in Canada, the US, Russia, the Amazon Rainforest, and tropical rainforests on the island of Borneo and the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
