The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve rainforests worldwide, and ensure sustainable livelihoods for the people who live in, and depend on them.
Companies, cooperatives and landowners that participate in our programs meet rigorous standards that conserve biodiversity and provide sustainable livelihoods.
The Rainforest Alliance believe that the key to ensuring long and healthy lives for people, wildlife and for the planet is by establishing sustainable ways of working the land. In more than 60 countries around the world, they collaborate with farmers, business leaders, governments, scientists and local communities to develop and implement standards that are socially and environmentally responsible, as well as economically viable.
By creatively and systematically helping to overhaul the way that crops are produced and the way tourism is managed, the Rainforest Alliance, and the consumers they serve are ensuring that the resources we depend on today will be here far into the future.
How They Do It
By connecting conservation to your life! The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal of approval makes it easy for consumers to know they are buying a product that has been grown sustainably. The companies who sell these products also make sure their customers know they are good neighbours in their communities, and that they take care of their workers and protect the environment.
