The Tropical Forest Alliance (TFA) is a global umbrella partnership comprising of
more than 400 consumer goods and retail companies to reduce deforestation in their supply chains for palm oil, beef, soy, paper and pulp. The project is integrated in the TFA in the partner countries.

In Peru, TFA supports the development of a national public-private partnership to end commodity-driven deforestation and engages key Peruvian stakeholders on deforestation at national and international events. In China, TFA engages private sector, government and civil society actors to build a common agenda on addressing deforestation and biodiversity loss. TFA leverages the World Economic Forum’s platforms and events as well as strategic communications to elevate the deforestation-free agenda in China and elsewhere.
