The Deforestation/Conversion-Free (DCF) benchmark requires third-party verification of zero-gross deforestation or conversion at the farm level. It aligns with the Accountability Framework definitions, targets and verification requirements.
The DCF benchmark sets protocols to ensure that expectations are clearly understood and met by all LIA participants.
