The Secretariat takes the lead in the organization’s technical direction and priorities.
Steering Committee Members
Sustainable Coconut Partnership Secretariat
The secretariat is hosted by BSR, a non-profit organization that has more than 30 years of experience in designing and growing business-led collaborations that successfully create system change in pursuit of a more just and sustainable world
The Sustainable Coconut Partnership is committed to complying with all relevant antitrust and competition laws and regulations. While some activities among competitors are both legal and beneficial to the industry, group activities of competitors are inherently suspect under the antitrust / competition laws of the countries in which our companies do business.
Agreements between or among competitors need not be formal to raise questions under antitrust laws. They may include any kind of understanding, formal or informal, secretive or public, under which each of the participants can reasonably expect that another will follow a particular course of action or conduct.
Each member is responsible for compliance and seeing that topics which may give an appearance of an agreement that would violate the antitrust laws are not discussed. It is the responsibility of each member in the first instance to avoid raising improper subjects for discussion.
