Microphone Accelerating action on deforestation in commodity supply chains

Time is running out for business to deliver on 2020 commitments – so what must companies do now?

Many companies, large and small, have made commitments to eliminate deforestation from their supply chains by 2020. Now, with only two more years to deliver on 2020 targets, the pressing question is: will it happen? To help address this need, Climate Focus on behalf of TFA 2020, has prepared the Commodity and Forests Agenda 2020: Ten Priorities to Remove Tropical Deforestation from Commodity Supply Chains. The report is a framework for action at the global and regional level in order to accelerate progress in addressing commodity-driven deforestation.

In this webinar experts from TFA, Proforest and Supply Change debate the new report’s conclusions, and how companies can up the pace in really eliminating deforestation risk from their operations and supply chains.

  • Marco Albani, director Tropical Forest Alliance 2020
  • Isabella Vitali, Latin America co-director, Proforest
  • Stephen Donofrio, senior advisor, Supply Change (a Forest Trends Ecosystem Marketplace project)

Introduced and moderated by Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum

Join TFA 2020 and Innovation Forum in Jakarta 17-18 October to continue the debate how business can tackle deforestation risks. Full details of discounted passes available here.
