SCAN would like to announce the launch of the Global Coffee Platform (GCP). Formally founded in March 2016, the GCP launched to the public on April 26th to tackle the most critical sustainability challenges and contribute to greater collective impact on the livelihoods and natural environments of coffee farming communities.
Combining the valuable membership of the 4C Association with the pre-competitive activities of the Sustainable Coffee Program, the GCP marks a new era of sustainability for the coffee sector.
Aligning the activities of a diverse network of over 300 stakeholders, through a bottom up approach, the GCP unites local public and private sector stakeholders to identify the most critical sustainability challenges, and then feeds these national priorities into a global agenda that the entire sector can commit to, known as Vision2020. Vision2020 translates into action-oriented work-streams, open for all coffee sector stakeholders to participate. Work-streams can also be developed on the basis of critical mass and interest from the general membership.

SCAN looks forward to a fruitful collaboration with the GCP towards a more sustainable coffee sector.
