Newsletter | September 2020

Once companies recognize the importance of addressing deforestation, conversion, and human rights risks in their supply chains, an important step is to define company policies and goals to address these issues. There are plenty of sources of advice on how to do this – in fact, it is easy for companies to get overwhelmed by the many NGOs, consultants, webinars, and initiatives offering guidance on these topics.

The Accountability Framework helps companies navigate this landscape by providing a single integrated source of information on good practice for ethical supply chains, incorporating key international norms and reflecting the consensus of diverse NGOs. Since the Framework was published last year, numerous companies have applied it to set strong supply chain commitments in line with the expectations of their customers, investors, and stakeholders.

Now, the AFi has published a pair of tools to make it even easier for companies to apply the Framework to develop, review, or refresh their supply chain goals. Read more about these tools below, and stay tuned in the coming weeks for additional AFi resources to support your ethical supply chain journey.

In this newsletter:

  • New tools help companies apply the Framework to set strong supply chain goals
  • AFi welcomes its new Supporting Partners
  • Announcing the Company Training & Learning webinar series
