The Rainforest Alliance is a growing network of people who are inspired and committed to working together to achieve their mission of conserving biodiversity and ensuring sustainable livelihoods. Through creative, pragmatic collaboration, they aim to rebalance the planet by building strong forests and healthy communities around the world.
Companies, cooperatives and landowners that participate in their programs meet rigorous standards that conserve biodiversity and provide sustainable livelihoods.
The Rainforest Alliance’s ambitious mission is to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices, and consumer behavior.
The Rainforest Alliance’s work is guided by their understanding that the health of the Earth is linked to the well-being of those whose livelihoods depend on the land and forests. As everyone has a vital role to play in strengthening this relationship, they provide training to farmers and foresters, work with businesses committed to sustainability, and motivate citizens to adopt sustainable lifestyles.
