Our work in landscapes

Landscapes are key sourcing regions where we collaborate to regenerate nature and improve people’s lives, creating replicable cases of holistic change.

Our work in landscapes

Landscapes are key sourcing regions where we collaborate to regenerate nature and improve people’s lives, creating replicable cases of holistic change.

The significance of landscapes

Protecting fragile ecosystems means finding a way to create value for people without sacrificing nature. This is too complex a challenge for any one company, commodity supply chain, NGO, or government to handle alone.

To secure a future for natural resources and the people who rely on them, collective action and collaboration are critical – we must go beyond the bounds of individual supply chains.

This is why we work in high-value landscapes across the globe to support local and international stakeholders in constructing pathways for regenerating lives and nature, building supply chain and farmer resilience, and achieving the goals of responsible sourcing.

Landscapes we work in

Our approach

We approach landscapes holistically, working in an integrated manner on sustainability and responsible sourcing across clearly defined sourcing areas, collaborating with key stakeholders from the private and public sectors, farmer associations, and civil society in each landscape. In particular, we believe it is critical to leverage market connections and work with all different commodity sectors in a landscape to drive transformation. Only by working together with other actors can progress be made.

Our principles

Regenerating supply chains is about restoring soils and forests. We work at the roots of the supply chain with farmers, local communities, governments, and partners to create regenerative agricultural practices, economic prosperity, and protect and conserve forests, thus creating replicable cases of change in sourcing regions. We work according to the following principles:

Field Presence

A strong field presence with embedded local staff that build relationships of trust with other actors to drive transformation

Local Ownership

Building local capacity and participatory governance ensures long-term sustainability and independent transformation

Data-driven

Data-driven impact measurement is deployed to assess change and communicate it

What makes us unique

Forests are vulnerable because farming communities are vulnerable. We put farmers and workers in their rightful position at the heart of the supply chain and use their knowledge to help agriculture adapt to changing climates or better coexist with fragile ecosystems. Improving agricultural practices can improve the livelihoods of farmers, workers and their families.
