Providing transparency for supply chains, analyzing land use impacts, and improving management systems: Projects can have positive as well as negative effects. The local population benefits through jobs, improved working conditions and access to education and training, while facing changes in their environment and local structures. Understanding the direct and indirect effects will help identify areas for continued improvement. The evaluation of impacts and their classification according to systems such as the Sustainable Development Goals creates transparency.
From farm to fork: We help you to understand your supply chain and the impact of natural capital as well as social conditions whether it is the production of cocoa, coffee, timber or other forest or agricultural commodities. We assist you to assess risks associated with deforestation, biodiversity loss, water usage, labor and human rights, production inefficiencies. We help you to design monitoring and managing systems to constantly improve the sustainable and responsible production of your commoditiy from at the site of its origin.
If your company decides to take action with regards to the environmental and social imapcts of your commoditiy production, you could think about carbon sequestration within your own supply chain, and thus offsetting emissions within your own supply chain. By doing so. i.e. reforesting or better managing agroforestry systems, you integrate an important aspect of sustainable production – reducing emissions and mitigating climate change – into your own value chain which provides for many other benefits such as soil protection, water supply or climate resilience.
From farm to fork: We help our clients to establish a sustainable supply chain that starts right at the beginning of the production cylce, at the farming area. Here, we assess the impact on the production itself, the ecosystem and environment, and, most importantly, labor and social conditions. We help to design and implement steps that improve land management (restoration, regeneration, smart techniques), environmental and social standards that result in better livelihoods and product quality.
We support you finding the right certification schemes for your commoditiy production (UTZ, FairTrade, FSC, Gold Standard). We help you to establish tracking and tracebility systems to comply with regulations or industry standards, and to live up to an increasing public awareness.
