Newsletter | March 2020

The COVID-19 crisis is a reminder of the interconnected nature of our society – including the supply chains that deliver crucial goods to our communities. To do our part and help flatten the curve of the present outbreak, the full AFi team has shifted to working from home and conducting all meetings virtually.

Yet our work to address deforestation, conversion, and human rights issues in supply chains continues at full pace. Given what is now known about the links between land-use change, climate, and the risk of new epidemics, there is ever greater urgency to establish more sustainable balances between commodity production, nature conservation, and human wellbeing in landscapes around the world.

Please read more below about how the AFi is working with companies, civil society, and other partners to find these balances by making ethical supply chains the new normal.

  • Hear what others are saying about the Accountability Framework
