This impact story is part of a collection of narratives that bring to life some of the complex challenges Forest Positive Coalition members are facing on our forest positive journey and our lessons learned. We’re committed to creating a culture of transparency and accountability, and these stories are just a glimpse of our ongoing efforts. We invite you to delve deeper into our 2023 Annual Report for more insights on this Coalition’s activities and progress, “Perspectives on Progress: Challenges and Insights on the Way to Forest Positive”.

Member/implementing partners:

The coalition has engaged with certification schemes (FSC, PEFC & SFI) on aligning KPI methodologies, PPP roadmap and guidance. Currently the coalition and certification schemes are looking to expand the scope of engagement to cover key themes including traceability, EUDR, and criteria related to DCF. Initial engagements on this scope have been completed and the Coalition looks forward to seeing how engagement regarding this expanded scope unfolds.

Moreover, the Coalition engages with certification schemes in partnership with CGF’s Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI), which supports organisations to recognise third-party auditing, monitoring and certification schemes and programmes that cover key sustainability requirements and apply relevant governance and verification through a comprehensive benchmarking process. This collaboration aims to avoid duplication of work and drive industry alignment of best practices. The coalition will continue to collaborate with SSCI, with the aim of extending our partnership to other commodity certification schemes in the future (e.g., RSPO in palm oil).
