Smallholder Agriculture Talanoa Dialogue

03 October 2018 |
,
,

Natural Capital Partners is working with ETP to convene a conversation to explore how to accelerate progress towards net zero carbon emissions by mid-century in the smallholder-dominated value chains of tea, coffee and cacao. Many food and beverage companies have to-date focused their climate actions on decarbonising operational activities within their company’s four walls, and the scale of the challenge to move to net zero across smallholder-dominated value chains is large. But corporates are playing an increasing role in enabling smallholders as climate leaders, via climate-smart, conservation, regenerative and resilient agriculture. We will convene roughly a dozen people, carefully selected to ensure representation from major players across the different stages of the tea, coffee and cacao value chains, for a conversation to explore challenges and opportunities to deliver net zero emissions in the highly complex smallholder-dominated agricultural value chains and to help scale action.

Natural Capital Partners is hosting a series of five roundtable discussions in the U.S. and Europe, each gathering companies from a range of industries which are already taking steps to significantly lower emissions and contribute to sustainable development.

The two Dialogues to-date – in San Francisco and London – brought together 15 companies with collective revenues totalling over $500bn from creative industries, energy, finance, FMCG, professional services and technology. We had wide-ranging discussions that resulted in some strong new ideas for ambitious climate action.

Through a frank and open conversation with other companies, we are exploring what the future of private sector climate action and leadership look like under the Paris Agreement and the role of business in achieving net zero carbon emissions. We think that the private sector has the desire, means, and ability to deliver urgent climate action and we’re offering selected clients and partners the opportunity to share their perspectives.

We are working with ETP to convene a conversation to explore ideas to accelerate progress towards net zero carbon emissions in the highly complex smallholder-dominated value chains of tea, coffee and cacao. We are convening roughly a dozen people, carefully selected to ensure representation from major players across the different stages of these commodity’s value chains.

ETP work with tea producers and smallholder farmers in its members’ supply chains to build a thriving tea industry that is socially just and environmentally sustainable. Its 50 members include the world’s largest tea brands.

Attendence of our Talanoa Dialogues is by invitation only. Please contact Alex Watson if you are interested in attending.
