GLOBAL PLATFORM FOR SUSTAINABLE NATURAL RUBBER
For a fair, equitable and environmentally sound natural rubber value chain.
Ensuring relevant representation of Smallholders within the GPSNR Governance is a priority.
GPSNR will work to harmonize standards to improve respect for human rights, prevent land-grabbing, deforestation and more.
Development of the GPSNR was initiated by the CEOs of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) Tire Industry Project (TIP) in November 2017. Members of the platform include tire manufacturers, rubber suppliers and processors, vehicle makers and NGOs. Representatives from each of these stakeholder groups have contributed to the development of the Singapore-based platform and the wide-reaching set of priorities that will define GPSNR strategy and objectives.
Vision: A fair, equitable and environmentally sound natural rubber value chain.
Mission: To lead improvements in the socioeconomic and environmental performance of the natural rubber value chain.
The 2nd General Assembly (GA) of the Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber (GPSNR) will be convened on 23 September 2020. Given the exceptional circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, the decision has been made to hold the GA virtually.
