GLOBAL COFFEEPLATFORM

Global action
Local impact

GCP Collective Action Initiatives act on identified issues that critically affect coffee farmers. GCP invites more companies and organizations to get involved in for sustainable impact at coffee origins.

Across the world, coffee farmers face a diverse range of threats to their livelihoods, their communities, and their natural environments. Whether labor conditions, water efficiency, or responsible agro-chemical use, each coffee producing country is confronted with their own unique set of challenges and with differing priorities.

GCP Collective Action Initiatives address selected priority issues and coordinate local and international stakeholders, the resources, and the expertise needed to collectively address and act on them.

As these systemic sustainability issues are too big to be dealt with by a single organization, GCP Collective Action Initiatives go beyond a traditional supply chain approach by involving country sustainability platforms, governments, the private sector, research, and NGOs. As the results are shared among the global coffee community for scaling and adoption into government and company policies, GCP Collective Action Initiatives ensure an environment conducive to long-term sustainability.
