Consultative Forum

The Consultative Forum will be open to selected parties with an interest in the HCS Approach, including plantation companies with public commitments to implement the HCS Approach who are not yet eligible for representation on the Steering Group. This includes manufacturers, retailers, financial institutions as well as industry bodies and civil society groups. Their role will be as invited observers and contributors to the work – but they will not have a decision-making role in the Steering Group.

Please email to receive an invitation to Consultative Forum events and initiatives.

Consultative Forum webinar
The first event of the Consultative Forum were three webinars conducted for interested parties in the Asia Pacific region, Americas and Europe in April 2015. The HCS Approach and the toolkit were presented to participants followed by a Q&A session.
