Stakeholders Agree on a Sustainable Natural Rubber Platform in GPSNR

The GPSNR was initiated by the CEOs who comprise the Tire Industry Project within the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. More than 50 stakeholders met between Jan. 22-23 in Singapore for a workshop featuring founding members of the GPSNR. During the conference, they aligned on a multi-stakeholder governance structure that includes greater voting power for civil society members. The platform places a high priority on recruiting smallholder members. The GPSNR plans to establish a working group to identify and secure adequate smallholder representation, it said. The GPSNR will put the governance structure forward for adoption at its first-ever general assembly, scheduled for March 21 in Singapore in conjunction with the World Rubber Summit.
