4C Voluntary Add-Ons
4C certification thoroughly covers and enables continuous improvement across three dimensions of sustainability. The core criteria are outlined in the 4C Code of Conduct. If 4C System Users desire to go beyond the 4C Code of Conduct and address a specific challenge in the coffee supply chain even deeper, 4C offers a solution in a form of add-ons. These add-ons are modules that are applied on top of the regular certification requirements and procedures.
At the moment, 4C System Users are welcome to apply for the 4C Gender Equality Add-on, or participate in pilots to support the development of 4C Food Security or/and 4C Climate Friendly Add-ons. To learn more, please contact us via info@4C-services.org.
