Organized by the Global Coffee Platform, the Global Coffee Sustainability Conference – one of the most important coffee events of the year – will take place this year from 8th to 10th November 2018 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
The event takes place in Belo Horizonte – capital of the largest coffee producing state in Brazil, during the renowned International Coffee Week.
The #GCSC18 gathers sustainability leaders and changemakers from every corner of the coffee sector to regroup, take stock, exchange, and continue to collectively act on local priorities.
The event will provide:
- A clear sector agenda to guide their sustainability investments and activities
- Concrete opportunities to develop or join local action initiatives
- Insight into the trends and best practices of coffee sustainability and investments
- Dedicated meeting time to strengthen existing or establish new business partners
According to Annette Pensel, GCP Executive Director, “the GCSC 2018, similar to the GCP, plays a crucial role for everybody involved in the coffee sector. It provides a neutral innovative platform where all kinds of companies, governments, and organizations can align their activities and resources behind a shared agenda, collectively act on locally determined priorities, and continuously improve and scale their sustainability performance.”
