Accelerate and scale activities to achieve a fair, equitable, and environmentally sound natural rubber value chain – including ensuring decent work and upholding human rights.

our actions

Enhance efforts to ensure sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth of the natural rubber value chain through alignment and commitment to the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR) policy framework (refer to the business example that follows for more detail on components of the policy framework).

Enable smallholders to access advanced farming techniques and knowledge on best practices to increase rubber yields, halt biodiversity loss, preserve future soil health and secure income.

goal
12

By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources. By 2030, achieve the environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, in accordance with agreed international frameworks, and significantly reduce their release to air, water and soil in order to minimize their adverse impacts on human health and the environment. By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse. Encourage companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle. By 2030, ensure that people everywhere have the relevant information and awareness for sustainable development and lifestyles in harmony with nature.
