      Norway has announced a complete ban on deforestation, making it the first country to commit to a zero-deforestation policy.

      Products that contribute to deforestation will not be used in the country, Eco Watch reports. The pledge comes two years after the country issued a joint declaration with Germany and Britain at the United Nations (U.N.) Climate Summit committing to "promote national commitments that encourage deforestation-free supply chains, including through public procurement policies to sustainably source commodities such as palm oil, soy, beef and timber."
