The Alliance graciously provides companies with a Responsible Purchasing Referential that integrates the challenges of deforestation and ecosystem conversion
Wishing to support companies in the fight against imported deforestation, the members of the Alliance for the Preservation of Forests have developed a unique referential allowing companies to structure their purchasing procedures taking into account the challenges of deforestation and conversion of ecosystems.
This framework is a first step
in the development of a roadmap to guide companies, whatever their size, sector
and level of maturity, in their progress towards achieving the Zero
deforestation objective. It includes a set of continuous improvement elements
at the service of companies aimed at:
• Structure the responsible
purchasing process to take into account deforestation and the conversion of
remarkable ecosystems in your purchasing and product innovation processes.
• Use the self-assessment tool
developed by the Alliance to understand where your business stands in terms of
deforestation and ecosystem conversions.
• Understand and formalize your
current level of maturity and prepare an improvement path on the subject of
• Participate in the Alliance’s
annual survey and contribute to the proposed reporting on this subject.
• Benefit from the development
of a common database of tools and references which allows the implementation of
the identified improvements.
The Alliance is pleased to make this referential available to businesses in open access and urges them to join its ranks to loudly speak out for businesses committed to the fight against deforestation.
