Rainforest Alliance

Sustainable is Attainable…One dollar at a time!

The Mission

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices, and consumer behavior. Companies, cooperatives, and landowners that participate in their programs meet rigorous standards that conserve biodiversity and provide sustainable livelihoods.

At the Rainforest Alliance, they believe that the key to ensuring long and healthy lives for people, for wildlife, and for the planet is by establishing sustainable ways of working the land. In more than 60 countries around the world, they are collaborating with farmers, workers, business leaders, NGO's, governments, scientists, and local communities to develop and implement standards that are socially and environmentally responsible, as well as economically viable.

By creatively and systematically helping to overhaul the way that crops and timber are produced and the way tourism is managed, the Rainforest Alliance, its partners, and the consumers they serve are ensuring that the resources the world depends on today will be here far into the future.

Envisioning a Sustainable Future

The Rainforest Alliance believes that it is possible to create a sustainable society, one that protects the planet and provides sustainable livelihoods for its people.

To achieve their vision, The Rainforest Alliance must transform the current destructive market system into one that values sustainable production, sourcing, consumption, and equitable trade.

Rainforest Alliance believes that sustainable management of businesses of all sizes requires:

*Clean air and water.

*Healthy biodiversity and wildlife habitat.

*Reduction of waste and toxicity.

*Reduction and mitigation of global warming.

*Dignified and safe living and working conditions, with adequate food, education, and health care for workers and their families.

*Equal opportunity for all.

 

Rainforest Alliance also believes that a sustainable market system requires that:

 

*Sustainable sourcing, supply chain management, and public accountability are standard practice.

*Products carry prices that reflect their real environmental, economic, and social value.

*Sustainable producers, small and community-based businesses have equitable market access.

*People demand and have access to high-quality, sustainable, and healthy products and choices.

*Financial and insurance sectors support sustainable operations and penalize unsustainable ones.

*Governments support sustainability through procurement, incentives, and regulations.

*Civil society sources sustainably.
