|The Rainforest Alliance 2020 program aims to create a more sustainable world by using social and market influences to protect nature and improve the lives of rural producers and communities.|
The Rainforest Alliance proposes to create, define and implement a long-term vision and approach to certification as part of a broad sustainability strategy. Sustainable practices addressed in the Rainforest Alliance 2020 standard include:
Achieving Rainforest Alliance 2020 certification for your products is an important step in establishing a responsible supply chain and demonstrating your brand's commitment to sustainability.
As a Rainforest Alliance approved certification body, QIMA/WQS can evaluate every link in coffee, cocoa, fruit and vegetable supply chains against Rainforest Alliance standards. With certification, your organization will be able to market products as Rainforest Alliance 2020 compliant.
Until now, the UTZ Protocol certified producers and other members of the supply chain on the UTZ Code of Conduct to improve cultivation methods, working conditions and environmental care. In 2018, UTZ joined the Rainforest Alliance to build a new, comprehensive and unified sustainability program.
Although more complete, the Rainforest Alliance protocol offers a simpler way to obtain sustainability certification. The program fosters innovation in supply chains and producers no longer have the extra cost of having to work with two different standards and certification systems.
The Rainforest Alliance has used UTZ's strengths, robust certification standards, and a single audit process as the basis for its forward-looking, long-term approach. The Rainforest Alliance 2020 Program is based on "reimagining certification." A long-term vision for the future of certification is part of the broader strategy of driving sustainability at scale.
