Progress on supply chain action to eliminate deforestation has been made. Much has been learnt about the underlying issues and we know that supply chain companies cannot succeed in bending the curve of forest loss in isolation. Indeed, it is clearer than ever that only collective action across sectors can address deforestation.
Where market signals are strong, big advances have been made in traceability and transparency, and certification is playing a useful role. This, in turn, has encouraged the big producers and traders to demonstrate their sustainability credentials. At the same time, we have discovered the limitations of individual supply chain approaches. Many of the world’s biggest brands, traders and producers may be onside. But, even so, their collective might has not been strong enough to steer the world away from deforestation.
We do need companies to accelerate action to clean up their own supply chains. But we also need them to reach out to other partners in the landscapes where commodities are grown. The TFA supports and catalyses supply chain action to move from a decade of individual action to a decade of collective action.
