A little more about us
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.
Bonsucro is ISEAL Code Compliant. Our system has been independently evaluated against ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice– a globally-recognised framework for effective, credible sustainability systems. More information is available at www.isealalliance.org.

15 years | 3 evolutionary steps
1.0 The initiative (2005-2010)
Built a credible multi-stakeholder organisation for better sugarcane, initially focused on creating a global, objective performance standard for everything that mattered about producing sugarcane and its primary derived products.
2.0 The certification scheme (2011-2015)
Launched certification in 2011 under a new brand name of Bonsucro and for the next four years demonstrated the ability to manage and maintain both the framework behind the Standard as well as a credible third party certification.
3.0 The global sugarcane platform (2016 onwards)
Responding to stakeholders and recognising significant shifts in industry and development
thinking (role of certification and standards organisations), Bonsucro is repositioning itself to become the global change platform for sugarcane.
