The Global Coffee Platform (GCP) is a multi-stakeholder membership association dedicated to advance coffee sustainability. GCP Members are united under a common vision to work collectively towards a thriving, sustainable coffee sector for generations to come. Members include coffee producers, trade, roasters, retailers, sustainability standards and civil society, governments and donors.

The Baseline Coffee Code is a sector wide reference on the foundations of sustainability in the economic, social and environmental dimensions for green coffee production and primary processing worldwide.  It contributes to a common understanding of sustainability for public and private coffee stakeholders and NGOs, as well as to aligned measurement and monitoring towards increased sustainable production and consumption of coffee.

Last revised in 2015, GCP is inviting members, non-members and any interested stakeholders in the coffee sector to provide feedback on the proposed revised DRAFT for the Baseline Coffee Code. 

For information about the rationale of the revision, the process, timelines and decision making please see the Project Description.

The consultation period will last 60 days from 1 March until 30 April 2021.

All information received will be treated with care and strict confidentiality. Only aggregated results will be shared publicly.

This survey includes a set of 14 questions as follows:

       I. Information about your organization/company (3 questions)

       II. General questions (6 questions)

       III. Specific questions (4 questions)

       IV. Additional comments (1 question providing the space to add specific  comments on any points you would like to raise after doing the survey)

The survey covers questions on the changes proposed to the Baseline Coffee Code. We recommend that you read first the DRAFT proposal and the Frequently Asked Questions available here before answering the survey.

The online version saves itself automatically so you do not need to answer all in one go and you can return to the questionnaire at a later point and even change responses, on the same device.

If you have any problems filling the online survey or have any questions, please contact

Thank you in advance for taking the time to contribute to this consultation.
