2019 Certification Impacts Report: Research Guides Our Way Forward

The 2019 Impacts Report synthesizes recent independent research on how Rainforest Alliance and UTZ certification affects farmers, farm workers and ecosystems.

The report also draws on our rich experience in the field, sharing lessons about the effectiveness of our strategies in the diverse regions where we work. With sections on each of the Rainforest Alliance’s primary crops—coffee, cocoa, tea and banana—the report furthermore highlights what these lessons mean for the Rainforest Alliance and the 2020 Certification Program.
