Defining product environmental standards in international trade

2017-07

LC/TS.2017/51

The Latin American and Caribbean Coffee Environmental Footprint Network initiative is a unique case of participation by public and private sector stakeholders from developing countries in the definition of environmental standards in the European Union. The purpose of this initiative is to involve stakeholders in defining standards that will affect their trade and competitiveness in the European market, rather than simply adapting and obliging coffee suppliers to adjust once standards are implemented.
