The first day of the annual GreenBiz sustainability conference in Phoenix, AZ delivered two main messages: we all have more in common that we have differences, and we are all on the same team, working towards the same goals.
“Since January 2017, all of our bananas have been sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms, which is great news for our customers. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal on our bananas – a green frog nestled in a circle – helps us to tell the story of how they are sustainably sourced, and assure customers we are sourcing from responsibly-managed farms.”
“I am moved to reflect upon how this organization’s long record of achievements makes a strong case for the power of international cooperation in addressing the world’s most complex and urgent problems.” – Nigel Sizer, Rainforest Alliance President
“Sustainability has always been at the core for our family business, and to improve the conditions for coffee farmers to secure future supply of quality coffee is our most important task.” – Kathrine Löfberg, chairman and fourth generation owner of Löfbergs
