Innovation Forum and IDH are partnering on this year’s Sustainable Landscapes and Commodities Forum
(Amsterdam, 1-2 November). By combining expertise and networks, this partnership will ensure that the right people from business, policymakers, finance, NGOs, and supply chain actors convene in Amsterdam this November. With an even larger and more diverse audience of key players, along with an agenda filled with critical supply chain challenges and cutting edge solutions, the forum will be the go-to event for sustainability sourcing professionals in the lead up to COP-27.
The Sustainable Landscapes and Commodities Forum is Innovation Forum’s flagship business conference. It is known for bringing together key players from across the value chain for behind-closed-doors discussion and practical, progressive debate. With a focus on forests, farmers, land and livelihoods, this year’s forum will assess how business can adapt sourcing practices to drive community resilience and tackle supply chain emissions.
The main conference agenda
will be complemented with a series of focused, hands-on workshops. The entire two days are designed to deliver concrete insights and very detailed problem solving around key issues. Throughout, there will be a focus on what’s practical and realistic for business to overcome key sourcing challenges and drive supply chain resilience.
