Bonsucro is the leading global sustainability platform and standard for sugarcane, one of the world’s most important crops. Our purpose is to collectively accelerate the sustainable production and uses of sugarcane.
We convene over 270 members from more than 50 countries to address critical challenges in the sugarcane sector and drive both performance and impact through our system of sustainability standards. We work across all sugarcane products and derivatives – sugar, ethanol, molasses, and bagasse in traditional and newer market sectors, from sugar and alcohol to biofuels and bioplastics.
The ISEAL Alliance represents the movement of credible and innovative sustainability standards. ISEAL’s mission is to strengthen sustainability standards for the benefit of people and the environment.Its membership is open to all multi-stakeholder sustainability standards and accreditation bodies that demonstrate their ability to meet the ISEAL Codes of Good Practice and accompanying requirements, and commit to learning and improving. Bonsucro is a proud Full Member, which means that we have achieved the highest membership status in ISEAL through demonstrating a high level of compliance with ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice.
How does the Bonsucro Production Standard relate to other sustainability initiatives in agriculture?
The Bonsucro Production Standard is the first one of its kind – a global framework built upon the principle of ‘if you can measure it, you can manage it’. That means it’s built upon key sustainability metrics. We’re constantly improving it too. That’s because the more we do so, the more it allows anyone who’s invested in sugarcane to improve as well. We are a mainstream initiative that’s driven by demand.
