On June 30 2020, The Rainforest Alliance announced their new Sustainability Certification Program with goals to produce better crops, decrease costs, adapt to climate change, and improve farmers’ productivity and livelihood.

Nowadays, increasing numbers of customers expect that the products they buy are produced sustainably, such as sustainably grown and harvested coffee, tea, or cocoa. As a result, more businesses are shifting their production and operations towards sustainability as well. However, declaring the existence of sustainability in the business process is not enough. How can customers identify if businesses truly operate sustainably? At the same time, how do companies get their sustainable production and manufacturing recognized? What are the measurements and standards for each industry?
