Deadline 16 April | Investment opportunity with The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) Forest Positive Coalition of Action

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) 5 months ago Posted in Opportunities

The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) Forest Positi...ition of Action are invite submissions of Expression of Interest (EoI) for landscape initiatives to be considered by Coalition members for investment in 2021. Deadline for submission is 16 April 2021 – see more information below.

The Coalition is a group of 20 leading companies with a collective market value of US$1.8 trillion that aims to leverage collective action and accelerate systemic efforts to remove deforestation, forest degradation and conversion from key commodity supply chains, while supporting sustainable forest management, conservation and restoration, supporting the rights of workers and local communities, and improving livelihoods.  

Central to the Coalition’s Theory of Change is the recognition that the transformation of commodity production to Forest Positive, as defined above, across entire sectors cannot be delivered by supply chain companies in isolation. Addressing deforestation and building Forest Positive production requires collaboration between companies, producers, local communities, governments and civil society organisations, and to build this collaboration in practice, Coalition members will focus on actions in production landscapes.

The Coalition is seeking promising landscape initiatives for its members to invest in this year and for potential longer-term Coalition engagement in 2022 and beyond. This open call for EoI is made to invite landscape initiatives that work in the Coalition members’ production base of palm oil, soy, pulp, paper and fibre-based packaging (PPP), and beef. Assessments will be made based on the Principles of Collective Action in Production Landscapes (see attached).  

Implementers who have more than one landscape or jurisdictional initiatives are invited to submit one EoI for each initiative they’re implementing. Submissions are be made through this online form by 16 April 2021 at 2pm CET – you can see the questions posed in the form in the attached document. Only submissions made through the online form will be accepted by the Coalition for consideration.

Any questions on this call for EoI should be addressed to the CGF at forestpositive@theconsumergoodsforum.com. Responses to the collated questions will be made available on the CGF website on 12 April 2021. 

Please feel free to send this open call for EoI to other colleagues or implementers supporting other landscape/jurisdictional initiatives.
