Sustainable Sourcing of Global Agricultural Raw Materials
The Sustainable Sourcing of Global Agricultural Raw Materials project is a new initiative to enhance the sustainability of sourcing agricultural raw materials around the world.
Increasingly, consumers and businesses are interested in goods that are produced in a way that takes into account the consequences of their production.
With the support of Mars Incorporated, ASI has partnered with the Information Center for the Environment at UC Davis to review food system best practice indicators at various scales (from global- to field-level concerns) to assess sustainability indicators and link identified issues with potential strategies for increasing the sustainability of agricultural commodity sourcing.
