Pre-competitive collaboration

In the past, companies have come together to lobby for better conditions or reduced regulations. However, in recent years companies have realised that working together on pre-competitive actions is very important in driving positive social and environmental outcomes. 

As a result, in addition to engaging with multi-stakeholder platforms and initiatives, companies have also been investing time and resources into processes and actions that support collaboration through the supply chain, such as aligning on collecting and analysing information, co-investing in projects to support change, and developing shared guidance on how to respond to issues.

Our experience convening and facilitating

We have played a central role in helping to convene and facilitate several of these collaborations, combining our deep understanding of how companies work with our local knowledge in each region and experience of facilitation.

For example, Proforest supports the Consumer Goods Forum’s Forest Positive Coalition, facilitating several coalition-wide action groups and the development of action-oriented Roadmaps for key commodities. We also facilitate the Palm Oil Collaboration Group (POCG), which brings together companies from every stage of the palm oil supply chain to accelerate effective implementation of No Deforestation, No Peat Expansion, and No Exploitation (NDPE) commitments.
