What do I need to include in the ‘Legal Compliance’ section?

20th January 2022

The Legal Compliance section is for members to disclose any relevant complaints issued or adverse findings by a court, or other judicial body, for each entity in membership/members cohort, in relation to their sugarcane production or sourcing supply chain. These should be either ongoing or within the last 6 years.  The issues/cases/complaints disclosed needs to be in relation to the issues covered by the Code of Conduct, which are Environmental compliance, Health & Safety, Labour rights, Discrimination, Planning & Licensing including land tenure and indigenous/community engagement, Privacy and data protection, and any other relevant issue that the member deems pertinent to Bonsucro’s Code. In the report in Bonsucro Connect you will find more details on the type of cases to be considered.
