The Ethical Tea Partnership was initially established on the basis that collaboration between companies was the best way of making a difference on sustainable sourcing issues.
Fourteen years later, this principle is as important as ever. Our collaborations now extend far beyond companies. They now include development organisations, tea institutions, certification programmes, government organisations, technical experts, donors and local NGOs.
The tea sector faces a range of short and long-term social and environmental challenges. As anyone who works on sustainability knows, enduring change on these issues requires partnerships between a range of very different organisations.
Our aim is to build the relationships that will make the greatest possible difference to the tea sector. We continue to look at ways of increasing our impact. If you think your organisation can help us achieve our vision of a thriving tea sector that is socially just and environmentally sustainable more quickly and effectively, please get in touch.
