Brazil. November. Collective Action. Save the Date for #GCSC18

One of the most important coffee events of the year, the Global Coffee Sustainability Conference will take place this year from 8th to 10th November 2018 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Set in the biggest coffee-producing state in the country and during the renowned International Coffee Week, the #GCSC18 gathers sustainability leaders and changemakers from every corner of the coffee sector to regroup, take stock, exchange, and continue to collectively act on local priorities.

Pushing the forefront of coffee sustainability, the #GCSC18 will provide participants with:

  • A clear sector agenda to guide sustainability investments and activities
  • Concrete opportunities to develop or join local action initiatives
  • Insight into the trends and best practices of coffee sustainability and investments
  • Dedicated meeting time to strengthen existing or establish new business partners

According to Annette Pensel, GCP Executive Director, “the GCSC 2018, similar to the GCP, plays a crucial role for everybody involved in the coffee sector. It provides a neutral innovative platform where all kinds of companies, governments, and organizations can align their activities and resources behind a shared agenda, collectively act on locally determined priorities, and continuously improve and scale their sustainability performance.”
