About Us

Frontierra utilizes satellite monitoring to analyse and evaluate deforestation, reforestation and carbon dynamics in soft commodity supply chains.

We provide data, reports, and documentation to evidence compliance with legislation and offsetting requirements, assist in corporate sustainability reporting and meet consumer and shareholder expectations and climate change commitments.

We are working to enhance sustainable agriculture by collaborating with agricultural producers, cooperatives, traders, purchasers and financiers that wish to identify, quantify and report deforestation, reforestation and carbon dynamics within their supply chains.

Frontierra is a member of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TFND) Forum, a consultative grouping of institutional supporters that will make available global, cross-sector expertise to support the work of the TNFD.
