Through certification, landscape and community programs, tailored supply chain services, and advocacy, we are helping to protect and promote the rights of farmworkers around the world.
The Rainforest Alliance has worked for more than 30 years to make agriculture more sustainable—and for us, the well-being of those who work on farms is central to that effort. When workers and farmers can earn a decent livelihood under decent working conditions, farms are more productive and land stewardship is more sustainable. Households become less vulnerable to poverty and economic shocks and more resilient to climate change. In short: everyone benefits.
Mandatory due diligence legislation can ensure that companies identify, prevent, mitigate, and account for potential risks and negative impacts that their practices may have on human rights and the environment.
Gender equality is essential for sustainability. It will take steady collective action to transform oppressive systems and advance the rights of women and girls. Here’s what we’re doing to get there.
