Sustainable Coconut Charter

Setting a global benchmark for  sustainable coconut origins

The Sustainable Coconut Charter was developed as an industry wide first endeavour to define coconut sustainability. The charter was conceived in 2020 and received more than 100 inputs from various stakeholders engaged directly and indirectly in coconut supply chains

It has been conceived as a guidance first, not a new auditable or verifiable standard in a long, complex supply chain at a time where traceability is still a challenge in most origins globally

It aims to:

  • Outlines areas of focus, principles and outcomes that should be expected of sustainability programs in coconut supply chains based on multi-stakeholder consultations.

  • Harmonize buyers’ requirements for supply chain partners

  • Helps companies and sustainability schemes define, benchmark and gain confidence in their sustainability practices for coconut

  • Streamline action towards meaningful pre-competitive collaboration and mutually recognized, robust sustainability programs
