This is the first training guide that helps tea farmers and factories lower their emissions and reduce energy costs. It was created with the Ethical Tea Partnership, the Rainforest Alliance and FLOCERT using a Kenya Tea Development Agency factory as a pilot case. Climate change is already having an impact on tea quantity and quality. Exporters are also increasingly subject to requirements set by buyers and retailers to measure and reduce carbon emissions. This step-by-step manual provides an overview of climate change in the tea sector; outlines options for tea factory managers and farm extension officers; and outlines carbon footprint measurement.
