We work with companies that produce, source and use forest and agricultural commodities. They include companies throughout the supply chain from producers, mills, aggregators, traders, processors and manufacturers to retailers.
ACRES is the Proforest approach to Agricultural Commodity Responsible Production and Sourcing. It is built on 20 years of practical experience helping companies work within and beyond their own supply chains.
Within supply chains
Within supply chains we help companies to source legal or certified products, with adequate assurances that they were produced responsibly. We help them to work with their suppliers to support better practices further up the supply chain.
Beyond supply chains
For more systemic challenges, like ensuring forests are protected and human rights are respected, it’s often better to collaborate with other companies and organisations in the production landscape or across the commodity sector. Proforest helps upstream and downstream companies work with each other, government and civil society to address these challenges.
