Ambities

The Shift helpt leden gebruik maken van het globaal kader van de UN Sustainable Development Goals om hun maatschappelijke ambities in kaart te brengen.

12. Responsible consumption and production

The health of the land is inextricably connected to the wellbeing of those who depend on it for their livelihoods. That’s the basis of our approach. In order for a farm or forestry enterprise to achieve Rainforest Alliance certification it must meet rigorous standards designed to protect ecosystems, support the well-being of local communities and improve productivity. The Rainforest Alliance then links these farmers, foresters and tourism businesses to the growing global community of conscientious consumers through the green frog seal. The Rainforest Alliance Certified™ seal is an internationally recognized symbol of working on environmental, social and economic sustainability that helps both businesses and consumers do their part to ensure a brighter future for us all.

13. Climate action

The Rainforest Alliance partners with communities, governments, businesses, nonprofits and local organizations to create sustainably managed landscapes and reduce deforestation and forest degradation. We strive to generate incentives for sustainable forest management and climate-smart agriculture, and we work with communities to prepare for and adapt to climate change.

17. Partnerships for the goals

From forest managers and individual farmers to large retail stores and supermarkets. The Rainforest Alliance works with businesses, big and small, helping them develop and implement more sustainable alternatives to environmental destruction and undesired labor practices. We help companies around the world identify more sustainable sources for the materials they need and diminish disruptions to their supply chains, allowing them to do well while also doing good.
