TCC addresses the social, environmental and economic conditions in the coffee, tea and cocoa chains through organising informed debates, in both the South and the North.


TCC ensures coordination of the members’ activities where needed and compiles lessons learnt and promotes the interchange of strategies to build shared understanding and approaches to sustainability in these commodities.


TCC shares its knowledge and influences policies and plans of companies, standard bodies, CSR initiatives, governments, NGOs and unions to develop and implement sustainable practices efficiently throughout the coffee, tea and cocoa chains.


TCC creates an enabling environment for civil society stakeholders from producing countries to join and take an active part in the sustainable commodity debate.
