The Accountability Framework initiative (AFi) is a collaborative effort to help fulfill commitments for responsible agriculture and forestry supply chains.

Draft sections of the Accountability Framework are now publicly available. We invite you to review and provide input to help shape further development of the Framework.

A Globally Applicable Approach Based on Consensus

The Accountability Framework initiative is a collaborative effort to establish common definitions, norms, and good practices for delivering on companies’ ethical supply chain commitments. Learn who is involved:

Contents of the Accountability Framework

A set of Core Principles form the centerpiece of the Accountability Framework. Common definitions guide the setting and implementing of commitments. And Operational Guidance provides additional detail on putting it all into practice.

Applying the Framework

The Accountability Framework guides each stage in the process toward establishing responsible supply chains. It can help companies and others to set commitments, take action, demonstrate progress, and support broader positive impacts.
