Core Principle 10 states that companies should contribute to landscape, jurisdictional, and sectoral initiatives to address key social and environmental challenges related to their operations and supply chains. Through collaboration with government, civil society, and local communities, these initiatives can help address risks and impacts of commodity production that are beyond the full control of individual companies. For instance, this may be done by developing more sustainable land use planning and zoning policies in a jurisdiction.

To support effective engagement in landscape and jurisdictional initiatives, the Framework provides guidance on: 

  • When and how companies may use landscape and jurisdictional initiatives to monitor, control, or demonstrate compliance of raw materials based on their origin
  • How companies can most effectively participate and invest in place-based initiatives that support their ethical supply chain goals
  • How companies may report on contributions to addressing deforestation, conversion, and human rights abuses beyond their direct production or procurement footprint
