Protecting Workers, Farmers, and Foresters From Forced Labor and Modern Slavery
There is no place in either sustainable agriculture or responsible business for human rights abuses such as forced labor. This position paper first presents how the Rainforest Alliance defines forced labor and what we see as the root causes of forced labor in the agriculture sector. We then lay out the Rainforest Alliance’s approach to tackling this issue through our certification program, landscape- and community-level programs, tailored supply chain services, and advocacy work. We also call on our partners around the world to join us in investing in structural and sustainable solutions to this global challenge.
