ESG Viewpoint: Drivers of Deforestation: putting the brakes on deforestation in automotive supply chains

However, there are signs that with increasing regulation and public awareness these issues are gaining traction. At Columbia Threadneedle Investments we have been engaging with car seat manufacturers, tyre companies and automobile manufacturers to drive progress on deforestation.
