Debate: Is the landscapes approach to sustainable commodities the most effective way to drive resilient rural communities?
11:30 - 12:30
The landscape approach - where companies spanning multiple sectors work together to address land use issues - is seen as one of the leading methods to manage social and environmental issues in commodity supply chains. However, success stories are few and far between. Especially at scale, where projects are yet to get beyond pilot schemes. Does this jurisdictional approach to sustainable commodities represent the most effective approach to ensuring sustainable commodities?
In this session, we will look at these issues and answer questions such as:
- What is the landscape approach and what is its role in improving sustainable sourcing?
- How can brands effectively bring government and stakeholders from all sectors to work together?
- How can business deliver and demonstrate measurable results in line with sourcing targets?
