How do land rights intersect with conservation? What role can satellite monitoring play in combatting deforestation? And how can we go beyond fighting deforestation to support active reforestation where it's needed most?
In 2010, Nestlé made a commitment to end deforestation in its supply chain. Using a combination of tools - like supply chain mapping, satellite monitoring and on-the-ground assessments - and working closely with our suppliers and partners, we have been able to assess 90% of our key forest-risk commodities as deforestation-free at the end of 2020. While we continue to work to achieve our 2010 commitment, we’ve taken stock of what we’ve learned. We are now applying those lessons to shift from managing deforestation risks to having a positive impact on the production landscapes we depend on and on the people that rely on them.
Join Nestlé's forest and sustainable sourcing leaders along with additional experts for insights into our journey. Together with partners, we will discuss what is needed to achieve a Forest Positive future – for the planet and for the people:
• How to implement forward-looking approaches to deforestation risks
• How to embed land rights and community rights into forest conservation strategies
• The importance of collective action
• The need for better incentives to protect and restore forests and other natural ecosystem
