"Being cool has never been so hot" - a webinar about climate action within the coffee sector
As founding members of International Coffee Partners and the initiative for coffee&climate (c&c), we believe in pre-competitive collaboration to address the challenges of climate change on coffee production. Climate change is a global challenge and climate action a global responsibility. The coffee sector makes no difference.
Climate change is not only threatening coffee supply, it is also threatening smallholder coffee farmer families’ livelihoods. Only intact coffee landscapes can ensure their well-being and, thus, future coffee supply. As the effects of climate change on coffee production are so huge that it is impossible for sector actors to address them alone. We acknowledge that fact and therefor continue to support c&c.
Join the coffee&climate Webinar
To find out more about c&c and what the coffee sector can and should do as part of the initiative, we invite you to the c&c launch webinar “Being cool has never been so hot” on Tuesday March 16, 2021 at 3 p.m. CEST (Hamburg, Amsterdam, Rome).
c&c supports smallholder coffee farmer families and their communities to effectively address climate change. Proven climate-smart solutions are shared in an open toolbox, and the families learn how to use them to improve their livelihoods. The initiative not only supports farmer families and helps to shape climate smart coffee regions, it also focuses on the establishment of carbon neutral coffee systems and fights deforestation.
The initiative for coffee&climate is driven by the shareholders of International Coffee Partners (ICP) which are Delta Cafés (Portugal), Franck (Croatia), Joh. Johannson (Norway), Lavazza (Italy), Löfbergs (Sweden), Neumann Gruppe (Germany), Paulig (Finland) and Tchibo (Germany) in cooperation with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). Hanns R. Neumann Stiftung (HRNS) is coordinating and implementing c&c action.
