Sustainable Coconut Roundtable Conference 2023
UNLEASHING POTENTIAL: SCALING UP SUSTAINABLE COCONUT FOR A RESILIENT FUTURE
November 20th 2023 Jakarta, SCBD
The Sustainable Coconut Partnership and RSPO teamed up to hold their conference the same week in Jakarta this year
to benefit participants who want to attend both.
Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to be a part of both events in one trip!
Scaling up sustainable coconut for a resilient future
The launch of the Sustainable Coconut Partnership has shown that companies, investors and stakeholders are ready to commit to sustainability in the coconut supply chain ; it is equally clear that our Roundtable Conference agenda must shift to focus on actions and impactful projects to address livelihood issues.
This year, we will bring together global and regional stakeholders including industry leaders, governmental agencies, researchers, and entrepreneurs for a day of substantive and actionable discussions to showcase the projects delivered in this first year of pre competitive action and address the incentives gap and systemic barriers in the industry that shake its durability.
With this event, we are addressing the urgent need to catalyze responsible coconut production and market transformation at scale by establishing industry-wide best practices and impact programs.
A field trip will be proposed on November 16th and 17th and a cocktail reception will be held on Sunday, November 19th.
