Recognizing the important role that the private sector can have in scaling up sustainable practices in emerging markets, the Initiative for Sustainable Forest Landscapes has been designed to maximize private sector engagement and financial leverage. The objective is to work alongside private firms that can provide capital, innovation, operational resources as well as technical expertise to accelerate the greening and securing of their supply chains. This will help "forest-proof" the sourcing of commodities and redirect market forces toward more sustainable and equitable land management practices.
