What's in our 2020 Certification Program? Assess-and-Address
Child labor, forced labor, discrimination, and workplace violence and harassment have never been—and will never be—tolerated by the Rainforest Alliance. We've learned through many years of experience that simply prohibiting these human rights violations in our standard is not enough.
That’s why our 2020 Certification Program promotes an assess-and-address approach to tackling these issues. This new, risk-based approach focuses on prevention, engagement, improvement, and incentivizing farmers and companies to tackle these issues rather than hiding them.
