Rubber

The promotion of economic, environmental and social sustainability in the production can only be done through dialogue and cooperation with all stakeholders along the supply chain and by incorporating the sustainability ambitions of the rubber industry into the process.
As a renewable resource, natural rubber is well placed to play an important role in lowering the environmental impact of farming and contributing to a sustainable agricultural development. The promotion of sustainable production can also enhance producers’ market entry and competitiveness in the growing new markets for sustainable products.

Producers and consumers need a globally accepted and credible framework for sustainable rubber production in order to take advantage of the prospects in trying to balance the growing demand for natural rubber with the environmental impacts of rubber plantations and processing units.
