Our Collective Commitment
As a tree crop farmed by millions, coffee has the potential to be a sustainable, natural climate solution and once again lead the way on sustainability within the agricultural sector. Coffee consumption continues to rise globally and meeting this would require at least doubling production levels by 2050. If the sector can do so on the existing 10 million hectares of coffee lands over the next 25 years, we can improve the livelihoods and economic viability of farmers and workers, conserve 10M hectares of forest, and avoid at least 1.5GT of carbon emissions. To realize this potential by 2050, we have established the following goals & incremental targets.
