Explore our interactive mapping tool for a satellite view of deforestation and fires in and around concession sites of companies featured on the SPOTT scorecard. These data can support SPOTT users in conducting further research to verify whether or not company commitments are being implemented on the ground.

Use the map search bar to find specific company concessions or locations. Click the concession sites marked by pins to zoom in for more information, then go to the company pages of featured concessions to view their assessments.

Some of Felda Global Ventures mill locations are available on Global Forest Watch, however, ZSL is currently unable to ascertain if the maps disclosed constitute 100% of the company's palm oil mills. Concession boundaries have been made available to the RSPO and the company declares these represent 100% of their concession sites, but not all may not be publicly available due to ongoing legal issues. Maps will become available on GeoRSPO. Some of the concessions are available on the SPOTT map.
