How business can tackle deforestation: Asia under the lens

Corporate actions that can drive - and enable - change on the ground

27 - 28 September 2016, Unilever Four Acres Singapore

A two-day event of leading debate and discussion to drive measurable change

As the sixth forum in the global series of 'How business can tackle deforestation' meetings, this multistakeholder forum will build on previous meetings in London, Washington DC and Singapore to provide practical guidance for corporations in the development and implementation of forest preservation practices in Asia. We will cover the latest trends and challenges companies face in removing deforestation from their supply chains, and debate what measureable actions moving forward might look like.

We will discuss themes such as:

Traceability: What do action plans for going beyond Tier 1, right down to the bottom of supply chains look like?

Engaging (and cutting) suppliers: Find out how to effectively engage and monitor suppliers, how to address supplier issues and how to implement exit strategies as a last resort.

Peatland preservation and restoration: What do solutions to current problems look like and are they realistic?

Smallholder farmers: What actions can - and should - corporations take to scale up smallholder engagement and what supporting role can the RSPO take?

Governance: What role can business take in building capacity for enforcement?

Speakers include

Dhaval Buch Dhaval Buch chief procurement officer Unilever

Simon Lord Simon Lord group chief sustainability officer Sime Darby

Nurdiana Darus Nurdiana Darus executive director Indonesia Palm Oil Pledge
