Manifesto

We are a group of responsible manufacturers and distributors who are determined to put an end to the deforestation* imported into Europe via our commodity supply chains, along with the corresponding social exclusion.

*Reference to 'Zéro Déforestation Tropicale et Zéro destruction ou conversion d'écosystèmes naturels remarquables' ('Zero Tropical Deforestation and Zero Destruction or Conversion of Outstanding Natural Eco-systems')

We are aware that this environmental and social plague is jeopardising our economic models, our corporate images and, first and foremost, our collective survival and have decided to come together to more quickly and effectively fight deforestation by 2020.

We would like as broad a coalition of environmental and social NGOs as possible to scrutinise and provide constructive feedback on all of our efforts and undertakings.

Our aim is to work as closely as possible with the government policies in force in the countries in which these commodities are produced, as well as with the main consuming countries in Europe.

Raison
d'être

The businesses belonging to the Alliance pour la Préservation des Forêts have one thing in common, namely the observation that the sector-based approaches that have thus far been developed in silo have made it impossible to effectively fight deforestation. It is urgent that we take concerted action! According to the scientific community and NGOs, a multi-sector approach is the only way to halt deforestation.

The Association recognises the benefits of collective action, which are greater than the sum of individual efforts on the parts of the businesses concerned, in encouraging all supply chains to become more sustainable, in cooperation with NGOs.

Commitments

Promoting sustained, shared and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent employment for all.

Protecting and restoring land ecosystems by ensuring that they are sustainably exploited, sustainably managing forests, fighting desertification, halting and reversing the soil degradation process and ending the decline in biodiversity.

Taking urgent steps to fight climate change and the repercussions thereof.

Ensuring access to water and sanitation for all and the sustainable management of water resources.
