4C joins the Swiss Sustainable Coffee Platform

We are proud to announce that 4C has joined the Swiss Sustainable Coffee Platform (SSCP), a significant step forward in our mission to promote sustainability in the coffee industry.

About the Swiss Sustainable Coffee Platform

The SSCP, launched on June 6, 2024, is a collaborative initiative that brings together the Swiss coffee industry, the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), civil society, and academia. The platform aims to create a coffee industry that respects human rights, protects the environment, and ensures sustainable sourcing practices, ultimately improving the livelihoods of coffee producers and their families.

Benefits of Membership

Membership in the SSCP offers 4C access to a wealth of shared resources, know-how, and best practices. This collective knowledge enhances our ability to address systemic sustainability issues such as climate change and living income for coffee farmers. Additionally, our participation in the SSCP enables us to collaborate on public-private partnership projects in coffee-producing countries, co-financed by SECO.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

As a member of the SSCP, 4C is committed to:

  • Leveraging collective knowledge to tackle key sustainability challenges.
  • Participating in and promoting projects that improve living conditions and economic resilience for coffee farmers.
  • Engaging in policy dialogue and peer exchanges to foster continuous improvement in sustainability practices.
  • Collaborating with other members to navigate regulatory requirements in a pre-competitive context.

Looking Ahead

Joining the SSCP aligns with our ongoing efforts to advance sustainability in the coffee value chain. We are excited about the opportunities this membership presents and look forward to working closely with other SSCP members. By sharing insights and learning from one another, we aim to make a substantial impact on the coffee industry, benefiting producers, their families, and the environment.

Stay tuned for further updates on our initiatives and progress as part of the Swiss Sustainable Coffee Platform. Together, we can build a more sustainable future for the coffee industry.
