SourceUp Global Launch Event


December 15th 12:00-13:30 (CET)

Are you part of a sustainability initiative looking to attract investors or mobilize funding? Or do you represent a company with ambitious sustainability goals? Would you like to learn how to forge partnerships that bring stakeholder capitalism to life?

Since 2018, IDH and partners have been working to define the SourceUp platform (formerly Verified Sourcing Areas). SourceUp is an online platform that links buyers of agri-commodity products with multi-stakeholder initiatives in producing jurisdictions (Compacts), aligning local priorities with global commitments.

By using SourceUp, companies are be able to search for Compacts in their key sourcing regions, support them and claim the impact they are making at the jurisdictional level.
