Bad Influence – how McKinsey-inspired plans lead to rainforest destruction.

Publication - 7 April, 2011
This Greenpeace report presents case studies on McKinsey’s influence on REDD+ plans for four forest nations – Papua New Guinea (PNG), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Indonesia and Guyana.

However, when rainforest countries employ McKinsey to apply its trademarked cost curve to their REDD+ prospects, few if any of the resulting plans meet basic standards of accuracy, rigour, utility or ethical    • acceptability. If implemented in their current form, these plans could actually result in an increase of deforestation and carbon emissions.
