New Metrics '19 Program Detail
New Deforestation Frameworks and Paths toward Science-Based Targets on Forests
This session will discuss the Accountability Framework initiative (AFi) launched earlier this year. The AFi is not a new standard, but a set of norms, definitions, and guidelines that helps clarify what good practices are in agriculture and forestry supply chains. To reflect the collective experience of companies, NGOs, governments, and other stakeholders, the AFi was developed by a coalition of more than ten environmental and social NGOs informed by an open consultation process. By applying the framework, diverse actors can use the same terms, norms, and metrics to reach their sustainability goals.
