Soft Commodities Forum
Proforest is the technical partner of the Soft Commodities Forum (SCF), a global platform formed by six major global soy traders, convened by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), to address shared sustainability challenges. SCF started acting by prioritizing the advancement of collective action towards deforestation and conversion-free soy supply chains in the Cerrado.
As part our support, Proforest is helping SCF to increase supply chain transparency, engage farmers in soy landscapes and strengthen supply chain collaboration.
In the transparency workstream, we help SCF to identify priority areas for action in the Cerrado; to develop a common reporting framework; to create targets and action plans to improve transparency.
In the farmer engagement workstream, we help SCF to identify and engage potential landscape initiatives in priority areas and to develop a framework to allow comparable monitoring and reporting of progress and impact.
In the supply chain collaboration workstream, we support SCF in the engagement with other supply chain actors and initiatives, identifying common barriers and opportunities for change through collaboration.
