A more diverse, equitable, and inclusive alliance
We envision a world where people and nature thrive together, which can only happen if we foster a more just and equitable global community. In the past year we’ve been building the foundation needed for meaningful progress on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at the Rainforest Alliance. Just as sustainability is a journey, DEI work is never finished: improving the lived experiences of the people in our alliance is a long-term project.
Some actions we’ve taken to create positive change in the last year include:
- Developing and implementing a DEI Committee structure and workplan, with active participation from team members of different geographies, identities, cultures, and backgrounds
- Conducting conversation circles with staff in different languages and organizing DEI courses for specific teams on cultural awareness and inclusive leadership, with a focus on local contexts
- Providing staff training on unconscious bias to encourage understanding and respect in our way of working
Our goal is for everyone in our alliance to have a sense of belonging and to feel safe, seen, and valued. While we still have much work to do, we are dedicated to making the Rainforest Alliance a place where we all thrive.

Certification & Beyond
Building on our decades of experience in certification, we’re scaling our ambitions through cross-sector partnerships and farmer-focused innovation.
A First for Regenerative Agriculture: Our Coffee Scorecard
For the Rainforest Alliance, sustainability is a journey, and regeneration is the destination. Regenerative agriculture seeks to create farms that actually add to nature’s richness, rather than take away.
In the coffee sector, a clear pathway to regenerative agriculture has been lacking—until now. In 2022, we launched the Regenerative Coffee Scorecard, developed in partnership with Nespresso. The scorecard focuses on five key indicators—soil, biodiversity, livelihoods, water, and crop resilience—and allows agronomists to tailor practices to local growing conditions, which can differ widely from region to region. This new tool, available to both certified and non-certified supply-chain actors, assesses current farm performance, highlighting improvement areas needing targeted support, and tracking progress toward regenerative goals.
“Regenerative agriculture is a win for farmers, food companies, and the environment,” says our Regenerative Agriculture Lead Juliana Jaramillo.
Transforming the Cocoa Sector in Indonesia
When nine days of heavy rains devastated a community in Ende, East Nusa Tenggara, local cocoa farmers joined forces with the Rainforest Alliance to rebuild their livelihoods—and prepare for future climate shocks. Together with our partner NGO Rikolto, we ran trainings in climate-smart farming techniques focused on flood prevention and crop health—from seasonal pruning and mulching to digging “rorak” pits to collect rainwater runoff.
This work is part of our wider initiative to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers in seven regions across Indonesia. In 2022, we trained 1,690 smallholders in key skills, including climate resilience, gender equality awareness, farming as a business, and cocoa fermentation.
“In the past, I had to wait for trees to bear many fruits, but not anymore. Now, every two weeks, I go to the farm to check.”Nuri
Toward a Regenerative Approach to Tea in Mount Kenya
On the slopes of Mount Kenya, we’re teaming up with farmers, companies, and government agencies to protect an iconic East African landscape. Together, we’ve set up a community-led Landscape Management Board tasked with forest restoration and strengthening rural livelihoods.
In 2022, much of our work focused on helping tea farmers tackle climate challenges—from rising temperatures and unpredictable rainfall to outbreaks of tea mites and weevils. Our efforts are rooted in the Rainforest Alliance’s regenerative agriculture approach—practices that heal the land, like organic composting, planting cover crops, and minimum tillage. Enos Gichanga Muriuki, a Rainforest Alliance Certified tea farmer in Kirinyaga, notes that his income has improved following the trainings. He is especially proud that “nothing goes to waste on our farm,” since he now turns livestock manure into household biogas and organic fertilizer.
“I am now perceived as a role model and my farm is seen as a center of excellence where many farmers within the region come to learn.”Enos Gichanga Muriuki
Mount Kenya is one of East Africa's most iconic landscapes. Here, smallholder tea and coffee farmers must work together to tackle the climate crisis.
Protecting Migrant Fruit-Sector Workers in Mexico and Costa Rica
The production of tropical fruits like bananas, pineapples, and berries relies heavily on migrant workers, who are particularly vulnerable to fraudulent and exploitative hiring and work practices. The Rainforest Alliance Certification Program requires certificate holders to perform rigorous oversight of labor recruiters to ensure workers are not exploited, and recruitment-related fees must be paid by farms, rather than workers.
In 2022, we went even further: In Mexico and Costa Rica, we secured commitments from 74 fruit farms (including avocado packing plants) and eight labor contractors to participate in responsible recruitment interventions. Our approach is based on a toolkit developed in collaboration with workers’ rights initiative Stronger Together.
Our Certification Program: Continuous Improvement Through Dialogue
This year we deepened our support for farmers and supply chain certificate holders as they transitioned to the certification program that we launched in 2020. Already more ambitious than previous iterations, the program and its rollout were further challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic and severe weather events.
That’s why we engaged in robust, on-going dialogue with partners, using their feedback to innovate targeted support. We increased the number of trainings, resources, and guidance, tailoring them to the needs of partners; we simplified tools and requirements; and extended transition deadlines. We granted almost 5,000 licenses to certificate holders in 2022.
Discover our certification highlights from 2022:
Resuming in-person trainings with expanded online support
Training—on everything from pruning to financial literacy—has always been one of the most effective ways we help farmers tackle challenges specific to their contexts. In 2022 we resumed in-person trainings after pandemic restrictions eased, while continuing to build out and use the Rainforest Alliance Learning Network (RALN), a user-friendly training platform we developed during lockdown. The platform now allows us to adapt materials for more contexts, reach more farmers, and support in-person trainings.

Strengthening workers’ rights on certified farms
For the Rainforest Alliance, the well-being of those who work on farms is central to any sustainability transformation. That’s why we protect and promote the human rights of hundreds of thousands of farmworkers through our certification program, and of tens of thousands more in our community-level work. Using an assess-and-address approach, establishing gender and grievance committees, and promoting a living wage are just some of the ways to strengthen the rights of workers on certified farms.
Throughout 2022, as part of that effort, we refined our risk mapping methodology, and collected more data for our child labor and forced labor risk maps (based on key indicators for priority sectors and countries). As part of our improved assurance system, we’ve tailored implementation and verification of standard requirements to the risk exposure of each farm—meaning that we expect farms with high risk to be more proactive about identifying and addressing their specific challenges. These risk maps are also an important tool for companies seeking to adhere to human rights due diligence processes.
“I used to think of my boss yelling at me as a normal thing, but now I know that it is harassment—and I know where to report it.”

A win for smallholders in deforestation-free regulation
Our certification program aims to help stop deforestation, with strict prohibitions on farm expansion into nearby forests and requirements for collecting data on farm borders. This year, 2.7 million farms were mapped for this purpose. But certification alone cannot stop deforestation, which is one reason we worked with partners, including the EU Cocoa Coalition, throughout 2022 to help shape the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR). One of our goals was to ensure provision for smallholder farmers in the regulation text. Thanks in part to this work, the final law (agreed upon in December 2022) includes capacity-building for smallholders among the recommended list of actions companies may undertake as part of their due diligence obligation. The European Commission has also committed to develop a strategic framework that supports producers in the implementation of the EUDR. Our deep, longstanding connections with small-scale farmers around the world guided our efforts to shape this law.
Our certification program can be a useful aid for companies seeking to adhere to this regulation, and also to carry out due diligence obligations on human rights and environmental risks in their supply chains.
Better data for better decision-making
Businesses are under increasing pressure to measure and report on their social and environmental impacts, whether from governments, interested consumers, or involved boards. More importantly, the data they gather can help them make better-informed decisions.
In our certification program, we work together with farmers and companies, supporting them to use data to improve their risk analysis, measure progress along their sustainability journey, and support future claims.
Planting seeds in our growth sectors
While the Rainforest Alliance is perhaps best known for certifying major crops like coffee, tea, cocoa, and fruit, we also certify 250 other crops.
In 2022, our certification program experienced growth in many sectors, ranging from herbs and spices to orange juice to coconut oil and hazelnuts, with more and more farms and buyers joining.

Landscapes & Communities
We’re driving sustainability transformation across vast landscapes. In partnership with all land users, we tackle complex and interconnected challenges that are too big to take on alone—from climate change and deforestation to human rights and rural poverty.
“It’s absolutely necessary that women are involved in landscape management. While men will always talk about productivity, women will be thinking about the variety of crops to grow, water access, and so on… all the things that help them bring food to the table.”Nadège Nzoyem
Rainforest Alliance Senior Director, West and Central Africa
Uplifting Women to Help Landscapes Thrive in Cameroon
When women lead, it benefits families, communities, and entire landscapes. In two of Cameroon’s most important biodiversity hotspots—the Western Highlands and Dja Reserve—the Rainforest Alliance is working to strengthen community-led landscape management and promote women as sustainability champions. Our goals include helping these communities establish landscape management boards (LMBs) with at least 30 percent women’s participation, and boosting women-led local enterprises.
Our Cameroon team has worked hard to address the everyday hurdles that local women face and to open up new opportunities for leadership roles. We created workshop spaces that are child- and infant-friendly, engaged directly with traditional authorities and participants’ husbands and family members to ensure they embrace the women’s efforts, and more.
In 2022, we reached some major milestones. The community-run LMBs are fully functioning across nine municipalities with an average of 32 percent women’s participation—a number that’s already higher than our original target. Additionally, five women-led businesses (selling agricultural and forest products) are receiving regular support for improved business management.
COP27 Side Event: Land Restoration Protects People and Nature
During COP27, Nadège Nzoyem, our senior director for West and Central Africa, joined a panel of climate leaders to discuss how expanding proven land restoration techniques can help us achieve our climate goals. She shared learnings from our work in Cameroon to show the importance of a multi-stakeholder approach to landscape management, emphasizing the need for long-term financial support.
This event was put on by the Rainforest Alliance and Landscape Finance Lab (partners of 1,000 Landscapes for 1 Billion People) along with World Vision Australia and the Ikea Foundation. Nzoyem also shared our work in Cameroon at two additional events organized by the Rainforest Alliance.
What is “Integrated Landscape Management” (ILM)?
Through our ILM approach, the Rainforest Alliance works with rural communities to build dynamic landscape partnerships that unite all land users: farmers, forest enterprises, local leaders, companies, and governments.
Together, we tackle complex and interconnected challenges that are too big to take on alone—from climate change and deforestation to human rights and rural poverty.
Explore some of our landscape projects around the globe:
Last year, the government granted 25-year extensions to four community forest concessions we partner with in the Maya Biosphere Reserve, and added two new ones, bringing hundreds of thousands of hectares under protection.
In 2022, together with cocoa farmers, government partners, and companies, we launched a five-year project to improve livelihoods, increase tree cover, and help reduce emissions.
In the Eastern and Western Ghats—major biodiversity hotspots—we’re working with a wide range of stakeholders to improve farmer livelihoods, restore degraded land, and conserve biodiversity.
Rainforests are being devastated by commodity-driven deforestation. So we’re collaborating with local and global partners to unlock international finance for sustainable production and forest management.
Launching the LandScale Platform
LandScale is a game-changing, all-in-one tool that allows users to assess social and environmental risks (such as deforestation or land conflict) and invest in, monitor, measure, and communicate their sustainability impacts at the landscape level. After a three-year pilot phase, LandScale officially launched its online platform in April 2022.
In 2022, LandScale assessments covered:

Harnessing a Global Village to Tackle Child Labor
The world has seen a post-COVID spike in child labor cases, but as the experiences of our “global village” show, we can make huge strides to change the course. By bringing together parents, teachers, farmers, governments, NGOs, businesses, and millions of individuals, we aim to ensure that all children grow up in dignity.
We believe the best way to eliminate child labor is to tackle its root causes, which range from rural poverty and weak law enforcement to traditional gender norms and a lack of access to quality education.
“Ensuring all children return to school and stay in school requires urgent investments in education, social security, and poverty reduction.”Kunera Moore
Rainforest Alliance Director of Themes
We can and must stop child labor. According to Kunera Moore, this requires long-term collaboration and a context-specific approach that tackles the root causes.
Discover how we’re working to stop child labor:
Together with coffee farming communities, coffee brand JDE, exporter Kyagalanyi, and non-profit CEFORD to address child labor and education by increasing financial literacy, school attendance, and job training.
Together with Funcafé, we’re bringing innovative child labor prevention programs—like “Coffee Kindergartens”—to certified coffee farms.
In the Central Highlands, we teamed up with JDE to train nearly 1,000 farmers on our certification program’s “assess-and-address” approach to child labor.
Together with our company partners Balsu, Durak, and Intersnack, we’ve improved housing for migrant workers and organized play and learning opportunities for their children.
Putting Farmers at the Heart of Our Work with the Community Listening Program
The Rainforest Alliance believes that listening closely to farmers, community members, and other local stakeholders can help us tailor our programs to better address their most urgent needs. In 2022, the Community Listening Program was launched in Guatemala, Ghana, and Mexico to develop and test a set of tools for gathering, synthesizing, and responding to stakeholder feedback.
Since then, we’ve conducted one-on-one interviews with over 300 farmers and other community members, learning about their experiences with Rainforest Alliance programs and projects and gathering suggestions for improvement. We learned, for example, that stakeholders view the training provided by the Rainforest Alliance as a major benefit of partnering with us and are especially interested in additional training on income diversification strategies.

Forest Allies: A Unique Partnership Between Local Communities and Companies
In all our landscape work, we center the voices of those who call these places home. When it comes to addressing the climate crisis and combating forest degradation and deforestation, forest communities have invaluable firsthand knowledge to share with those who want to develop and invest in effective solutions.
That’s where Forest Allies comes in: We’re forging a powerful alliance between companies, local communities, regional and international organizations, governments, and other stakeholders to support forest communities to solve the complex problems they face. Forest Allies is an opportunity for holistic collaboration and, for companies, impactful investment in the regions they source from and beyond.
Our company partners help us finance this work; their initial investments helped us secure an additional US$2.4 million in donor funding.

Our New Strategy
During this critical decade, join us in accelerating the speed and scale of impact.
A Critical Decade
Connected crises threaten our future—from the climate emergency and spiraling biodiversity loss to chronic rural poverty and human rights challenges. 2030 is commonly cited by experts as a potential “point of no return”—making this a critical decade for humanity.
The hard truth is that the old sustainability models are good, but not good enough. They’re too fragmented, too small, too slow—and we all know it.
But on the flip side, we’ve learned a huge amount about what works and what doesn’t.
Changing our food system begins with meeting the needs of the people who grow our food: farmers. That’s why our model for change starts with creating conditions for thriving rural producers in some of the world’s most critical tropical landscapes.
This kicks off a flywheel effect that brings positive change to everybody who’s touched by this market—from stimulating demand from companies and consumers to attracting more funding and support for regenerative agriculture.
“What if farming not only fed people, but also healed the land? The truth is we already know that there is a better way to farm—and it’s called regenerative agriculture.”
Senior Director, Asia-Pacific
We will focus the full power of our alliance on five key landscapes across Latin America, Africa, and Asia. These are all places of extremely high environmental value, where threats to people and nature intersect on a daily basis.
To maximize our impact, we need an inclusive and integrated approach. This means bringing all landscape users together—and all tools at our disposal—behind a shared vision for system change.
“We need to flip the traditional rules of sustainability project design—ensuring a leading role for the rural communities who live and depend on these landscapes.”
Senior Director, East & Southern Africa
Ambition is one thing and accountability is another. That’s why we need to track our impacts—and do so transparently.
The Rainforest Alliance is committed to building one integrated data system for all our programs, from farm to landscape level. This, in turn, will unlock further opportunities for impact and smart investments across global value chains.
We’re All In
From the iconic Selva Maya to the fertile slopes of Mount Kenya and beyond, we’re inviting farmers and forest communities all over the world to join the global transition toward regenerative agriculture and forest restoration. And we’re calling on companies, institutions, governments, and individuals worldwide to stand with us and help scale impact across critically important landscapes.
Let’s create a world where people and nature thrive in harmony together.
“By 2030, our regeneration movement hopes to reach 100 million people in farming and forest communities. This is 20 percent of all producers working in tropical forest areas—a tipping point for system change.”Santiago Gowland
Rainforest Alliance CEO
