  1. www.saiplatform.org www.idhsustainabletrade.com Project title: Development of Product Category Rules for the calculation of the carbon footprint of green coffee • Why the project? • The coffee sector is very active in environmental issues related to coffee production. • Methods of measuring the emissions of green house gases from the green coffee value chain vary considerably and as such provide varied results. • Common methods are essential for the coffee sector to be ‘speaking the same language’ when sharing and comparing GHG mitigation programmes. • Clear outputs of quantification activities is essential for informed decisions to be made . • The Driver is not labelling – It is about better understanding and continuous improvement quantifiably. Green coffee carbon footprint calculation: Towards a globally recognised standard • Who is driving the process? • Sustainable Agriculture Initiative Platform (SAI Platform: ) Coffee Working Group is collaborating with The Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH) in order to deliver this project • The Steering Group for the project is Tchibo, Illy Cafe, D.E Master Blenders 1753, Mondelēz International and Lavazza. • How is the project delivered? • As the project is being developed for the entire Green Coffee sector, the associated process is totally transparent. • Teams of interested stakeholders collaborate to ensure that every level of the supply chain has the opportunity to contribute to the developmental process should they wish. • The project is seeking pragmatic solutions to the lack of data availability so it is not a barrier to the delivery of the PCR process. • The PCR development seeks a sensible balance between scientific robustness of the outputs and practical delivery. • What is the timeline? • Open consultation will start on April 15th 2013 • Deadline for consultation is June 3rd 2013 • The Product Category Rules review and approval will take place on August 5th 2013 • Publication of the Green Coffee PCR will is planned for October 7th 2013 If you want to know more or get involved, please contact Brian Lindsay (BLindsay@saiplatform.org)
