AF-16140 Continuous improvement of sustainability of all agro-products (BO-45-002-012, BO-23.05-001-030)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


In this project, WAGENINGEN RESEARCH (Wageningen Economic Research) will develop a solid, fact-based and standardised system to monitor progress on sustainability performance of all agro-products (mainly food and ornamentals) sold in the Netherlands. This system will be based on the globally applicable tools developed by The Sustainability Consortium (TSC). The system will be developed and tested in cooperation with a large group of participating companies under the umbrella of the Alliantie Verduurzaming Voedsel (AVV), GroentenFruit Huis and FloraHolland. Participating companies will gain insight in the current sustainability performance and the system enables them to prioritize the most relevant sustainability issues and improvement opportunities. By sharing these insights with supply chain partners, companies have a sound basis for discussing the development towards more sustainably produced products. The goal of project partners is not only to start a dialogue, but also to stimulate continuous improvement of sustainability in the coming years and beyond.
