Position paper: Net zero tea

Our paper outlines our global position on net zero in the tea industry, the challenges, and our approach.

The Global South, where tea is often produced, is facing the effects of climate change at an increasing rate, and if we fail to reduce emissions swiftly, these impacts will continue to worsen.

Our Strategy2030 is committed to working towards a tea industry that has minimal environmental impact. Net zero is one of three focus areas within our work on environmental sustainability, alongside climate-resilient agriculture and zero deforestation. Our aim is to support tea farmers and businesses in lowering their emissions and transitioning to more sustainable and efficient practices.

This paper outlines ETP’s position on net zero in the tea industry.
