We are aware that the environmental and social plague is jeopardising our economic models, our corporate images and, first and foremost, our collective survival and have decided to come together to more quickly and effectively fight deforestaton by 2020.
We would like as broad a coalition of environmental and social NGOs as possible to scrutinise and provide constructive feedback on all of our efforts and undertakings.
Our aim is to work as closely as possible with the government policies in force in the countries in which these commodities are produced, as well as with the main consuming countries in Europe.
The businesses belonging to the Alliance pour la Préservation des Forêts have one thing in common, namely the observation that the sector-based approaches that have thus far been developed in silo have made it impossible to effectively fight deforestation. It is urgent that we take concerted action! According to the scientific community and NGOs, a multi-sector approach is the only way to halt deforestation.
The Association recognises the benefits of collective action, which are greater than the sum of individual efforts on the parts of the businesses concerned, in encouraging all supply chains to become more sustainable, in cooperation with NGOs.
To inform about the issues associated with deforestation and developments within the sectors concerned.
To serve as a platform for interaction and collaboration between private players and others stakeholders.
To support our members in the practical implementation of their commitments by facilitating the pooling of tools and the conciliation of approaches both upstream and downstream
Already mobilized to stop deforestation in their own supply chains, our member companies believe that it is through collective work that they will succeed in eradicating this scourge more effectively and quickly.
The Alliance for the Preservation of Forests enables its members to share good practices in favour of transparency and traceability and to take concrete action at the scale of a territory. As such, the Alliance has a 3-year partnership with CIRAD (Centre de coopération internationale en recherche agronomique pour le développement) to improve the training of small-scale farmers in Southeast Asia and with Pongo Alliance, a collective committed to preserving biodiversity in Borneo.
