Land Use and Forest Advisory Panel
Cargill has formed a new Land Use and Forest Protection Advisory Panel to accelerate progress across priority supply chains and provide a more systematized basis for the input of key global partners and NGOs.
The panel is designed to ensure that the strategies and resources underpinning Cargill’s forest commitments are adequate to deliver positive socio-economic and environmental impact. Members bring cross-sector insights to Cargill, accelerating the company’s ambitions and supporting continuous improvement. The panel builds on the company’s existing work with trusted advisors and thought leaders, which resulted in a revised Global Forest Policy and accompanying Land Use Operating Guidelines, both of which are now being actively implemented across the company’s businesses.
Brendan May, chairman of Robertsbridge, a global sustainability advisory firm will chair the panel. Brendan is the former chief executive of the Marine Stewardship Council and was European chairman of the Rainforest Alliance from 2009 to 2013.
