Bioenergy Supplier Engagement and Deforestation Risk Assessment


Anthesis supported an American Food and Beverage provider in their efforts toward reducing its exposure to key risks within its bioenergy supply chain. We conducted a forest risk assessment to help identify and manage potential risks associated with deforestation, environmental degradation, and social issues. The risk assessment helped to inform the development of an actionable and effective supplier engagement survey. The survey was used to help our client gain clarity on if and how its bioenergy suppliers are aligned with industry best practices related to sustainable wood sourcing.

  • A tailored supplier engagement survey informed by the results of the risk assessment. 
  • Analysis of survey results and practical recommendations on strategy and risk management approaches moving forward.
