Earthqualizer strives to support the sustainable development goals of our clients, partners, and other key stakeholders. We believe robust data is the bedrock of good decisions and better business. Years of expertise coupled with robust data sets have positioned Earthqualizer to support our partners with industry insights that are:
The Spatial Intelligence Lab provides a wealth of raw data that is synthesized to help provide detailed insights and compelling visualizations, which can be used to steer development in the right direction.
Our Spatial Intelligence Lab involves spatial and non-spatial data management. This covers the following specialized areas to support the value-chain transformation.
We monitor agriculture and forestry supply-chain NDPE commitments with experienced helpdesk support on the engagement and verification findings for accurate, reliable, and actionable market decisions.
Deforestation and damage to natural resources often occur off the grid of established supply chains. Together with a network of local and international partners, Earthqualizer's team of investigators is working to ensure social and environmental justice is done.
Earthqualizer is taking the following actions in response to deforestation:
Collecting on-the-ground data related to social and environmental impacts
Monitoring known company land banks
Reporting on land clearing in plantations
We explore, analyze and understand the complexity of supply chains with updated and on the ground tracing verification.
Industry transformation is possible only when decision-makers embrace the need to change and commit to action. Through our “traceability to decision-makers” research, we unravel the tangled world of private company ownership, helping buyers, investors, and their business partners to have a more positive impact.
We map out business relationships.
We investigate and uncover corporate activities at the group level
We document evidence of non-compliance with NPDE sourcing policies
We provide downstream procurement managers with a robust toolkit used to implement their company sustainability goals
We achieve social and environmental justice by ensuring accountability and traceability
Our “one-stop” digital directory of global agriculture and forestry business and comprehensive sustainability information
We provide global near-real-time agriculture and forestry-related social issues information to support the non-exploitation policies
We source reliable on-the-ground information from local experts for accurate and credible decision-making
We deliver credible and accurate thematic spatial analysis report to support NDPE policies, such as Top Deforested reports, Fire Burning reports, and Stranded Land reports
Our Transform by Action Platform is a commodity trade data platform designed to enable business-to-business verification of No Deforestation claims
We assess agriculture and forestry commodities’ supply chains from a ‘Deforestation-Free’ claim with high accuracy and comprehensive data sourced from plantations, mills and refineries, up to group levels
There is a growing need for suppliers, such as growers and refiners, to issue credible ‘Deforestation-Free’ claims and calculations. Such a claim makes a statement about the impact of the company’s supply chain on environmental and social value areas.
‘Deforestation-Free’ assessment methodologies are still in the early stages of development. However, Earthqualizer believes that the following minimum requirements should apply to individual (suppliers) as a necessary first step:
Meeting legal requirements with regards to land utilization for oil palm plantations
Commitment to the implementation of NDPE policy at the group level.
Ready to implement traceability systems to identify the origin of production for all Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFBs).
‘Deforestation-Free’ claims may cover the direct mill supply base and/or the full group supplier supply base.
We anticipate that ‘Deforestation-Free’ claims may evolve as they progress from first-party to a second party and finally to third party evaluations.
Earthqualizer works to connect environmental degradation with marketplace decision-makers. Whilst we have not yet won the war against deforestation, we do win many battles by providing timely insights regarding environmental and social safeguards. These insights are informed by cutting edge methodologies and technology, including:
Artificial Intelligence applying machine learning, deep learning, and other techniques
Aerial monitoring with an expansive drone fleet
We combine spatial and non-spatial key information for accurate, updated and reliable analysis
