The Accountability Framework initiative (AFi) has opened registration for the third webinar in its 2023-24 series. The event will focus on how companies can work towards sourcing agricultural and forestry commodities that are free from deforestation and ecosystem conversion.

Scheduled for Wednesday 13 September 2023, the session is designed for a corporate audience, specifically for companies that source agricultural and forestry commodities, such as cocoa, coffee, palm oil, soy, and more.

The webinar will include speakers from companies and service providers and will be followed by an interactive question and answer session. Attendees will have the ability to submit their questions to the speaker panel and hear their answers live.

Webinar topic

Managing a commodity supply chain to achieve deforestation- and conversion-free sourcing requires purchasing materials that can be verified to originate on production units that have not been subject to conversion of natural ecosystems since an appropriate cutoff date.

Companies rely on a range of strategies to source commodity volumes that are compliant with their policies, including farm-level monitoring, use of certification programmes, and assessing risk of sourcing areas. In this session, hear from companies and service providers about successful and in-development approaches to sourcing deforestation- and conversion-free volumes.

This is the first in a series of webinars on managing agricultural and forestry commodity supply chains. Coming webinars will address managing supplier performance and engaging in sourcing landscapes.
