Global Land-Use Policies: Development, Implementation, and Performance
Thursday, October 22, 9:45 AM - 12:00 PM
As the demands of our food and industrial systems place increasing stress on natural resources around the world, companies relying on these systems face pressure to find solutions to both the supply and demand sides of the challenges. This half-day session offers a structured forum to explore the various responses developed by global companies as they address the basic security of their future supply chains. BSR will bring together a group of companies in the food, agriculture, and natural resources sectors, as well as researchers and civil society representatives, to explore these challenges and begin to learn from each other how best to proceed. Specifically, the session will explore business drivers for establishing land-use policy, existing corporate land-use policy guidelines, and trade-offs of various approaches that can be used to identify and evaluate compliance with and performance against policy.
