“The Business Case initiative”: collective action and innovation to reduce deforestation

Digital Room 2

Rainforest Alliance, CDP, Clarmondial, Conservation International, and USAID announce a transformational public-private partnership to reduce commodity-driven deforestation, contribute to global climate and biodiversity goals, and drive new investment in inclusive development across some of the world’s most important tropical landscapes.

This robust public-private partnership brings unprecedented reach in finance, markets, sustainability standards and large-scale landscape management. Over the next five years, Business Case will convene the private sector, governments, and local producers and organizations in some of the world’s most important tropical ecosystems and sourcing regions to address global environmental challenges associated with commodity-driven deforestation, including greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss. Working in Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, and Indonesia, Business Case will pilot a novel landscape approach that leverages the complementary expertise of its partners while benefiting local and indigenous communities and enterprises.

Join the Business Case initiative launch on Friday, 11 November, 17:00–17:45 (UTC+2 | Cairo) / 10:00–10:45 (UTC -5 | Lima).
