Proforest Initiative UK (PIUK) is one of Proforest Group’s three charitable organisations.

Proforest is a not-for-profit group. PIUK manages grant-funded programmes, and projects that support other non-profit organisations. PIUK’s knowledge products are always publicly available.

Pernyataan Tujuan PIUK

Kami mendorong transformasi produksi komoditas pertanian dengan mengatasi masalah sistemik yang menghambat pencapaian hasil sosial dan lingkungan yang positif.

Kami melakukan ini dengan membangun kolaborasi antara perusahaan rantai pasokan, produsen, pemerintah, LSM, dan pihak lainnya dengan berbagi alat bantu dan pengetahuan inovatif.

Sebagai anggota Grup Proforest, kami dapat memanfaatkan keterlibatan grup yang ada dengan perusahaan rantai pasokan, serta jaringan global keahlian lokalnya di negara-negara produsen.

The Proforest Initiative UK mengelola berbagai program yang didanai hibah. Ini disampaikan melalui kerja sama dengan entitas Grup Proforest lainnya, yang menyediakan keahlian lokal untuk menyampaikan program dan memastikan kepemilikan lokal atas pengetahuan yang dibangun melalui program.

Program kami membantu:

  • Prakarsa bentang alam dan sektoral yang memberikan hasil lingkungan dan sosial yang positif dalam skala besar
  • Proses multipihak regional dan lokal yang memungkinkan pengelolaan kolektif yang lebih baik atas tanah dan sumber daya, dan penghormatan terhadap hak asasi manusia
  • Kolaborasi antara lembaga sektor publik dan perusahaan untuk mewujudkan sasaran keberlanjutan bersama
  • Pembangunan kapasitas di antara perusahaan, instansi pemerintah dan masyarakat madani untuk memproduksi dan memperoleh komoditas pertanian dan kehutanan secara berkelanjutan

PIUK juga mengelola beragam portofolio proyek jangka pendek yang membantu prakarsa multipihak dan skema standar sukarela.

Kami memfasilitasi berbagai proses multipihak, mengumpulkan para pelaku seputar tantangan sektoral, dan memberi nasihat tentang aspek teknis standar keberlanjutan.

The value of our charity

We value the charity status of PIUK because it helps us to:

  • Deliver grant funded, non-profit activities which produce publicly available outputs
  • Separate the governance of grant funded activities from consultancy operations
  • Raise capacity and address systemic environmental and social issues in commodity production countries

Bagaimana pengelolaan Proforest Initiative UK?

Proforest Initiative UK didaftarkan sebagai badan amal oleh Komisi Badan Amal untuk Inggris dan Wales (nomor badan amal 1137523) dan diawasi oleh dewan pengawas independen.
