In 2013, Oxfam initiated a groundbreaking campaign, Behind the Brands, to challenge 10 of the largest food and beverage companies to improve their economic, social, and environmental performance. This initiative has drawn the support of almost a quarter million advocates and spurred well-known companies to make ground breaking commitments on land, climate and gender.

As a result of this campaign, two companies – General Mills and Kellogg’s – announced commitments to set science based targets (SBTs) for reducing GHG emissions including agricultural emissions from their supply chains in 2015. Since then several other BTB companies including Unilever, Nestle, Mars, Mondelez,PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company and Danone – have also set SBTs. Companies also committed to engaging suppliers, supporting responsible climate policy and eliminating deforestation from supply chains. (

2020 is a critical milestone for reviewing the progress companies have made towards implementation of their commitments and is also an important moment for spurring global climate action. To that end, Oxfam seeks to understand: to what extent are companies implementing their climate commitments and identify areas of progress as well as the gaps and challenges that companies need to address.

A more detailed TOR is attached. A budget of USD $25,000 is available to support this evaluation.
