The partnerships that comprise COSA are a timely example of a shifting trend. Our culture of collaboration bridges diverse points of view to ignite dialogue and cooperation to address such complex challenges. Balancing state-of-the-art scientific methods with business-like pragmatism in the measurement and interpretation of sustainability makes COSA a valued partner for other leading learning organizations such as the FAO, the InterAmerican Development Bank Multilateral Investment Fund, the World Cocoa Foundation, the Sustainable Food Lab, and ISEAL. Sharing clarity and scientific rigor across partners fosters a more dynamic collaborative approach – to achieve what we call ‘group genius’ – that delivers greater levels of insight and innovation than any one entity can achieve alone.
