404. Closing the accountability loop: assessing progress toward deforestation-free supply chains: 1:15pm – 2:45pm
Event time: 1:15pm — 2:45pm
Location: Pershing Hub, Convene, 101 Park Avenue
Event organizer: Meridian Institute
This session will engage Hub participants in a robust discussion on progress and accomplishments against Goal 2 of the New York Declaration on Forests since 2014 when it was launched, with a focus on modalities and metrics of corporate reporting of progress against relevant goals and commitments. Panelists from agricultural commodity producers and buyers and initiatives that track, assess, and facilitate reporting on corporate commitments related to deforestation-free supply chains will reflect on the challenges and opportunities related to measuring and demonstrating progress against no-deforestation commitments in order to drive accountability across forest-risk commodity sectors.
