The food industry, highly susceptible to climate change, grapples with natural disasters impacting crop growth. Customer expectations now demand a dual commitment to social responsibility and eco-conscious practices. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations are becoming integral to corporate strategies. With one-third of greenhouse gas emissions attributed to the food industry, ESG efforts are vital for mitigating climate, deforestation, and food waste impacts.
Sustainable certifications play a pivotal role, reflecting a company's dedication to ESG values. Organic, Non-GMO, Animal Welfare, Safer Chemistry, Plastic-Neutral, Fair Trade, Forestry, ISO 14001, Climate and Carbon Neutral certifications (and others) offer diverse avenues for businesses to demonstrate commitment. Choosing relevant certifications requires a strategic approach to align with core sustainability identity and achieve meaningful impact. The certification process involves working with accredited bodies, emphasizing readiness assessment, audits, corrective actions, and continuous improvement to uphold sustainability commitments effectively.
