Jenier World Of Teas - Sustainability
We are members of the Ethical Tea Partnership and as such, all teas are sourced through members of the Ethical Tea Partnership wherever possible all tea comes from tea estates that undertake responsible land use practices. Tea estate land not used for tea cultivation or worker vegetable gardens, remains in its natural state or has been reforested as part of the estates managed forest program.
The Ethical Tea Partnership has a goal to provide consumers with a totally transparent perspective on where tea is grown and manufactured. All aspects of the quality of lives for those living and working on tea estates is covered including fair compensation health coverage, housing and childcare. The ETP runs monitoring and improvement programs to help tea producers improve against the Ethical Tea Partnership Global Standard and all audits are carried out by independent third-part auditors. Whilst similar to Fair trade, the ETP is totally focused on tea and is able to address the many individual nuances and regional peculiarities within the tea trade. ETP also differs from Fair Trade in that its primary focus isn't economics, but is also very much led by the social and environmental aspects of the tea trade. This approach is helpful as where higher prices are paid in developing countries it addresses the concern of unscrupulous companies bolstering lost margins further along the supply chain.

We aim to be at least Carbon Neutral and as such all materials and suppliers are assessed in relation to their manufacturing processes and recycling practices. Recent assessments show 80% of main suppliers have offset processes in place that yield them Carbon Negative.
