Transforming Business Practices
Business as usual is no longer an option. To succeed in the long-term, companies must safeguard their reputation, maintain a safe, healthy and productive workforce and ensure that the materials they need have been sustainably sourced.
What We're Doing
The Rainforest Alliance works with businesses, big and small -- from forest managers and individual farmers to large retail stores and supermarkets -- helping them develop and implement sustainable alternatives to environmental destruction and unethical labor practices.
On Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms and forestlands, wildlife and ecosystems are protected, workers receive decent wages, good housing and healthcare, and their children have access to education. We help companies around the world identify sustainable sources for the materials they need and minimize disruptions to their supply chains, allowing them to do well while also doing good. We also train tourism business managers and owners to make their enterprises more sustainable -- protecting the natural treasures that attract tourists and contributing to the economic health of their communities by employing local people.
Evaluating Our Impact
To make sure that we are as effective as possible, we routinely conduct and evaluate impact studies on our work and continually adjust our approach. Read more about how we are transforming industries.
