To advance this mission, Rainforest Alliance is focused on amplifying the impact on the ground through systemic transformation: change across the entire supply chain, change in the relationship between people and nature, and change within their own organisation.

Together, they amplify the voices of farmers and forest communities, improve livelihoods, protect biodiversity, and help people adapt to climate change in bold and effective ways.
