Webinar: Sourcing deforestation- and conversion-free agricultural and forestry commodities
13 September 2023
Hear more about strategies for sourcing agricultural and forestry commodities that are free from deforestation and conversion. Speakers including Efeca and Nestle.
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.
