Collective Action and Investment in Landscape Initiatives: The Business Case for Forest Positive Transformation

This report from The Consumer Goods Forum Forest Positive Coalition of Action (CGF FPCoA) shares the value for businesses looking to invest in landscapes and jurisdictional-level approaches. Five reasons are presented as to why companies investing and engaging in landscape and jurisdictional-level initiatives makes good business sense; which are informed by interviews with Coalition members and implementing organisations that are working at this level in their existing engagements.

These reasons highlighted include increased supply chain security and cost-efficiency, the ability to achieve multiple ESG commitments at once as well as the mitigation of risks that are often present in the production of agricultural commodities.  

It also draws upon case studies from Siak, Indonesia; Mato Grosso, Brazil and Chiapas, Mexico to show how investing in landscapes is not only good for businesses, but has positive impacts for people, nature and the climate. For more information on the CGF FPCoA, and their work in landscapes, you can access their 2022 Annual Report here.
