Large-scale deforestation has led to climate change and biodiversity loss. Soft commodities (including unsustainable palm oil, soybean, beef, and timber products) production is one of the important reasons driving global deforestation. For the purpose to reduce the risk and trend of deforestation, the concept of building a sustainable forest product supply chain and sustainable consumption of forest products has gained more attention among the stakeholders. At the 26th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP26) World Leaders Summit held in Glasgow this November, more than 140 countries, including China, Russia, Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia among others, have jointly signed the Glasgow Leaders' Declaration on Forest and Land Use, promising to stop deforestation and re*verse land degradation by 2030. During the COP26, China and the USA have also issued a joint declaration to support the elimination of global illegal deforestation. 

 

The Forest Sustainability and Supply Chain Finance Side Event at the 9th China SIF Forum is focusing on the sustainable production and consumption of forest products. It will combine the latest trends of ESG development, with the latest trends in sustainable forest management in China. The event will invite multi-stakeholders to share their thoughts and ideas. The event will also discuss how to improve industry awareness and capabilities of forest sustainability and supply chain finance issues from the perspective of sustainability standards and ratings of forest products, and multi-stakeholder engagement. 

 

Due to COVID-19 regulations in Beijing, the meeting will be held from 2:30 to 5:00 PM on December 9, online. The event organizer SynTao and supporter CDP hereby sincerely invite you to participate!
