Tapping potential

The private sector has a significant role to play in combating wildlife, human and timber trafficking and Global Eye develops constructive relationships and programs to assist these entities to meet these challenges. Shipping companies and airlines may have timber or animals in their holds; furniture suppliers could be receiving and processing illegal timber; toy and clothing manufacturers may have trafficked or indentured workers deep in their supply chains.

The private sector also includes the financial institutions that may be unwittingly administering proceeds of crime and supporting the laundering of criminal funds. We work with them to strengthen their regulations and corporate social responsibility.
