Tea-producing regions face complex and systemic obstacles, from low wages and incomes, to unsafe working conditions, gender inequality, environmentally unsustainable practices, and climate change. Our on-the-ground projects are locally-led and built on the foundations of a ‘participatory approach’ . With our global and local level expertise, we convene the right mix of partners to help projects deliver lasting change, build responsible exit strategies, and provide communities with the tools they need to sustain positive impact.
How will we achieve this?
ETP’s vision and mission are ambitious: to tackle deep-rooted, complex issues and create lasting change in the global tea sector. Our approach is to deliver locally-led projects that involve communities, collaborate with the private sector to pioneer responsible business models, and engage stakeholders to support policies that positively impact people in tea.
