We invite your company to join our Forest Allies community of practice to have a greater impact on forests within—and beyond—your supply chain. Together with local forest communities, we will work together to protect, restore, and enable responsible management of tropical forests. Listed here are the benefits and responsibilities included in your Forest Allies membership.
Forest Allies members will enjoy the following benefits:
- Gap analysis of company policies against the Accountability Framework;
