TEAM UP 2022 was held on 21 June at the Royal Institute of British Architects in central London, and virtually. It was attended by business leaders and key players in the sector, including tea companies, producers, NGOs, governments, as well as representatives from other sectors.
The theme of this year’s TEAM UP was ‘Sustainability Solutions’. The purpose of the event was to share insights and generate action-orientated discussions relating to economic, equality, and environmental issues in tea.
Panellists and attendees explored the practicalities of achieving carbon net-zero tea value chains, delved into gender-based violence frameworks, and debated approaches to reaching living wages and incomes.
