Bonsucro

Bonsucro is a not-for-profit initiative dedicated to reducing the environmental and social impacts of sugar cane production. The Bonsucro Standard defines a set of globally applicable principles, criteria and indicators for sugar cane production.

 It aims to reduce the impact of sugar cane production on the environment in measurable ways, while also contributing to social and economic benefits for sugar cane farmers and all concerned with the sugar supply chain.

Bonsucro engages stakeholders in a credible and transparent standard-setting process that takes into account local conditions and circumstances and ensures a focus on sustainability.

Driving our innovations programme forward

One of the critical reflections from our Global Sustainability Standards conference, held last month in Washington, is that there is a fundamental shift in the nature of the conversation about sustainability standards. Collectively as a movement, we recognise the scale of the challenges that lie ahead of us. We recognise that our current models are not going to get us where we need to go and that we will need to continue to innovate and improve the effectiveness of our systems.
