The initiative for coffee&climate (c&c) is an open global partnership of coffee companies and public partners who strive to address the negative effects of climate change in coffee and help the sector to adapt. Due to varying weather conditions, the extensive expertise of c&c encourages practical adaptation and further developing sustainable production methods which secure higher yields and return of investment. Thus, c&c promotes a coordinated effort of dedicated members within the coffee sector. The aim is to enable smallholder coffee farming families to better respond to climate change in the short and long term by increasing their adaptive capacity and resilience.
Through our work we are contributing to a collective impact beyond coffee.
c&c is contributing to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) including:
