Board and Committee Leadership

Our Forest Positive Coalition is sponsored at Board level by Alexandre Bompard, CEO, Carrefour and Noel Wallace, Chairman, President and CEO, Colgate-Palmolive. As Board Co-Sponsors, they actively drive and support the work of the Coalition Committee and present the team’s progress to their peers during our bi-annual Board of Directors meetings.

The Coalition Committee is Co-Chaired by Emily Kunen, Senior Director, Sustainable Agriculture, PepsiCo and Mikel Hancock, Senior Director, Strategic Initiatives, Walmart. The Committee has the mission of driving collaboration between retailers and manufacturers and driving the Coalition’s forest positive agenda.



Currently, 21 of the world’s largest manufacturers and retailers are members of the Forest Positive Coalition of Action.





The Coalition is also supported by the Tropical Forest Alliance, which provides logistical support and expertise. In addition, technical support for developing the roadmaps is being provided by Proforest.
