Sustainable Coffee Platform (ongoing since 2014)

Sector collaboration is the way forward for sustainable sector strategies. The Dutch coffee sector collectively expressed the intent to increase the share of sustainably produced coffee and to further increase sustainable coffee production in a pre-competitive manner. This led to the foundation of the IDH Sustainable Coffee Platform. We supported IDH in facilitating the development of a shared vision for a sustainable coffee sector and translating it into national strategies for key coffee producing countries.  This allowed IDH to align major competing producers on coffee sustainability for the first time, which has helped to open the door to a sustainable future for the sector.
