International - REDD
Member companies of the Consumer Goods Forum have committed to purchasing agricultural commodities such as soy, palm oil, beef, wood and paper, sugar, cotton, coffee, and cocoa that be be claimed "deforestation free". To be sustainable, agricultural commodity production requires traceable and verifiable refinery/mill-level supply chains that are inclusive of smallholder raw material suppliers.
Within state-level Jurisdictional REDD programs, CarbonVerde® develops and implements traceable and verifiable chain of custody inventory control systems within producers’ commodity supply chains that are inclusive of smallholders and large producers of raw materials using a refinery/mill-level procurement system approach. This procurement system approach is built to ensure responsible raw material suppliers maintain access to markets while meeting critical social and environmental safeguards, and Consumer Goods Forum company demand.
