The Bonsucro Chain of Custody certification can help you to improve your image, achieve sustainability procurement goals and build partnerships to tackle sustainability issues together.
The demand for responsibly grown sugarcane has been mainly driven by large sugar buyers, such as Coca-Cola, Kraft Foods and Bacardi, who are now opting for sugar produced in a more sustainable manner.
Bonsucro (Better Sugarcane Initiative) is a global multi-stakeholder non-profit organisation promoting sustainable sugarcane production. It recognises responsibly manufactured sugarcane products and derivatives, such as sugar, ethanol, molasses and bagasse, while prioritising businesses’ commitment to a responsible environmental, social and economic performance.
Bonsucro’s mission is to ensure that responsible sugarcane production creates lasting value for the people, communities, businesses, economies and eco-systems in all cane-growing origins. With this objective, they developed a set of principles, criteria and indicators used to assess sugarcane supply chains conformance.
The Bonsucro Chain of Custody Standard is a traceability system that enables brands to trace sugarcane from the origin to the end product and make sustainability claims about their sugarcane sourcing.
The Standard has been designed with the Standard Development and Revision Procedure in line with the ISEAL Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards.
Preferred by Nature is a certification body licensed to carry out audits against the Bonsucro Chain of Custody Standard.
