The Sector Partnerships Program

Over the past 15 years, UTZ and the Rainforest Alliance have built leading certification schemes that help enable all actors in the supply chain to move towards sustainable sourcing.

However, there are some challenges that certification alone cannot address. Through our Sector Partnerships Program, we are strengthening the capacity of farmers—especially smallholders and women farmers—and civil society organizations in producing countries. We are helping them work with governments and companies to tackle issues that require a sector wide approach, including child labor, deforestation, and climate change resilience, and more.
