Launch of the Responsible Commodities Facility
This event will mark the launch of the Responsible Commodities Facility (RCF), a new fund created to provide financial incentives to farmers that commit to cultivation of the Deforestation and Conversion Free (DCF) soy, leading to a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and biodiversity loss.
RCF is designed to provide bondholders with risk-adjusted returns, thus creating a sustainable financial model that can be replicated and scaled. In its initial phase, the Facility plans to allocate over 1 billion US dollars to trigger market transformation on a landscape level. The Facility will be funded by the issuance of Green Bonds listed in the London Stock Exchange.
The launch event will have the participation of senior representatives of the UK government, UN Environment, Climate Bonds Initiative, Banco do Brasil, HSBC, &Green Fund, soy buyers and traders.
The Responsible Commodities Facility is an initiative of Sustainable Investment Management, a manager of environmental funds, with the support of
Partnerships for Forests. Partnerships for Forests (P4F) is a five-year programme funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) which aims at catalysing investments in forests and sustainable land use. P4F operates in Central, East and West Africa, South East Asia and Latin America.
