Developing mutually beneficial partnerships is perhaps the single most important aspect of our work in reconciling social and ecological responsibility with market and supply chain realities.
As such, we partner with hundreds of players of all shapes, forms, and sizes from across global supply chains — from local producers and associations, supply chain service and input providers, to governments, civil society, policy and decision-makers, CSR leaders, leading global brands, and consumers.
Although many of our partners have differ in their interests or agendas, they all share one thing in common: They all believe we should — and can — create a world in which all we produce and consumer can sustain us while respecting the planet, each other, and the next generations.
Since 1969 through today, we continue to build capacity, expertise, policy, tools and methodologies that will enable change that matters. Yet we can’t do it alone. Ultimately we all need to become change-makers – smallholder farmers, miners, cutters, dyers, brands, businesses, governments and consumers alike. Creating change that matters, requires us all to change together.
If that sounds like you too, and believe you could make a contribution to our vision, please contact us to find out more.
