About the Landscape programme
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.
