How business can tackle deforestation

Innovation Forum and the Tropical Forest Alliance 2020 are working together in this business oriented forum to bring a large and diverse group of stakeholders – private sector, government representatives, key NGOs and the investment community – to discuss the challenges faced in removing deforestation from corporate supply chains and how to overcome them.


There will be focused debates and practical working sessions on:

– Current performance of brands vs ambitious targets: How are companies performing against 2020 objectives?

– Peatland preservation and restoration: What do solutions to current problems look like and are they realistic?

– Jurisdictional approaches: A more inclusive and comprehensive solution to deforestation?

– Smallholder farmers: What actions can – and should – corporations take to scale up smallholder engagement?

– Deforestation-free finance: Are banks finally catching up?
