(fortsættes på engelsk)
Using a risk-based approach, the Framework addresses sustainability issues across two performance levels: Legal and Core. The Framework will be the basis for Preferred by Nature commodity-specific and country-specific risk assessments that are offered via the Preferred by Nature Sourcing Hub.
Preferred by Nature recognises the important work already being done by agriculture, forestry and other certification schemes. Therefore, the intent of the Sustainability Framework is not to create a new product certification standard, but to offer a broader sustainability framework under which companies can use existing certifications as they take actions to fulfill their sustainability commitments, as well as legal and market demands, through a risk-based approach.
Organisations who comply with the verification requirements under the Sustainability Framework can use our Preferred by NatureTM seal for their products and promotional materials.
The first round of consultation resulted in a series of changes to the Framework. You can download an overview of changes and a summary of stakeholder feedback here.
You can access a list with all comments here.
