Sustainable Coffee Challenge ensuring coffee’s future

The nation’s favourite cuppa is high on the agenda as London is in the midst of the London Coffee Festival this weekend and the UK celebrates UK Coffee Week from 16-22 April.

Coffee is one of the world’s favourite drinks, but right now, the future of coffee is uncertain due to climate change.

Rising temperatures, drought and changing weather patterns caused by climate change are making many key coffee-growing areas less suitable for coffee production. The only way the planet can ensure its future is by growing the world’s coffee in a sustainable way — protecting forests and farmers.

The Sustainable Coffee Challenge convenes, unites and urges the coffee sector and conservation partners across the industry to spur the actions and investments necessary to make coffee the first sustainable agriculture product in the world.

The Challenge is committed to stimulating demand for sustainable coffee across the value chain, from the policymaking level to the final consumer. By encouraging demand for sustainable coffee, it leads to investments that enable the transition to a sustainable production and ensuring the coffee the planet consumes is a sustainable product.
