No quick fix

Delivering the change we need is no easy task, and there is no quick fix.

Nature-positive production

We need a new nature-positive model for global food production that rewards producers for sustainability, optimises production and livelihoods, fosters cross-sector collaboration, and enhances natural systems.

Collective action

The need to mobilise a wide range of actors in complex supply chains remains a key challenge. And globally, longstanding business commitments to eliminate deforestation from supply chains for beef, soy, palm oil, and wood by 2020 remain unmet while commodity-driven deforestation and habitat conversion continue on a massive scale.

Stand up for nature

Supply chain transformation also depends on coherent policies and incentives from governments that reward investment in nature protection. Here, business advocacy for nature can play a vital role.
