The Rainforest Alliance and NEPCon announced last month their intention, subject to agreement on detailed terms, for NEPCon to acquire the RA-Cert business unit that manages Rainforest Alliance's certification, assurance and auditing services in sectors including forestry, agriculture and tourism.
During the first of what the Rainforest Alliance is planning as a series of stakeholder workshops focused on pressing issues related to sustainability, representatives from companies and the United States government came together in late January to discuss labor issues in supply chains, focused on coffee and cocoa. This forum was created to provide an open, cross-sectoral space in which stakeholders could share freely and learn from each other’s experiences on visibility into labor conditions upstream in supply chains of these commodities.
Many small producers especially face the challenge of low consumer recognition of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and the lack of resources to promote FSC with potential clients.
