The East African Tea Trade Association (EATTA) held its third African Tea Convention and Exhibition (ATCE) event in Nairobi in May. Among the 20 international speakers and hundreds of participants were the Rainforest Alliance’s Per Bogstad, Senior Manager, Markets Transformation UK, Ireland and India, and Joseph Cameron Booth, Coordinator, Markets Transformation.
A key tenet of the Rainforest Alliance is to help ensure sustainable livelihoods. Living wage is an important part of this journey. The new book “Living Wages Around the World” is the road-map.
Rainforest Alliance’s President Nigel Sizer offers a scientist’s perspective on interdependence.
As Rainforest Alliance marks Earth Day in this our 30th anniversary year, it is especially appropriate to recognize some of our collaborating companies who have recently delivered creative programs and achievements.
The most recent event on “How Business Can Tackle Deforestation” was held in Washington D.C. in early April with about a hundred participants, including Rainforest Alliance.
