The AFi provides comprehensive guidance for creating ethical supply chains that can be applied worldwide across all agricultural and forestry commodities. It enables a holistic and aligned approach to managing supply chains, investment or loan portfolios, and sustainability initiatives.
Accepted international norms, best practices, and expectations of commodity buyers, investors and civil society are brought together into a single integrated resource. The framework’s consensus-based norms, guidance, and definitions help users align goals with market and stakeholder expectations.
The resources are used to develop an effective course of action to address the deforestation, conversion, and human rights impacts of supply chains.
