Finance Alliance for Sustainable Trade



The Common Fund for Commodities (CFC) is calling for activity proposals that aim to support commodity development within its member countries. The goal of the CFC is to support business activities surrounding commodity advancement in areas such as agriculture, minerals, and metals, within Developing Countries. CFC supported activities contribute to social, economic and environmental sustainable development while also providing measureable returns in each of these three areas.

This September 7-11th, over 4,000 participants gathered from 142 countries for the World Forestry Congress in Durban, South Africa, and FAST is excited to report on some of the events that took place. FAST, with the collaboration and financial support of Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), launched a new framework that measures the social, environmental and financial impacts that investments in sustainable forestry can yield.

On October 8th, 2015, FAST and Cataléthique, a non-profit business network focussed on sustainable development, are co-hosting a cocktail-conference "Equitable Forestry: Looking for Investors". During this conference, FAST will be sharing its newly launched impact measurement tools.
