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 differ in their interests or agendas, they all have one thing in common: They all believe we should — and can — create a world in which all we produce and consume can sustain us, while respecting the planet, each other, and the next generations.
Since 1969 through today, we build capacity, expertise, policy, tools and methodologies that enable change that matters. But we can’t do this 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.
