A unique platform to learn, evaluate, and disclose your own ESG performance and that of your supply chain network
Food manufacturers and retailers now have additional responsibilities around environmental, social and governance imperatives (ESGs). Consumers don't want to purchase from brands that have a negative impact on the environment and the people that are producing the products for them.
How does ESG benefit certificated sites?
ESG will help your sites contribute to meet the needs of the consumer.
- Learn about the importance of business performance as it relates to sustainability and resilience;
- Measure your current performance against a template of “what good looks like”;
- Advance your performance through continuous improvement and;
- Report your status and, more importantly your progress with interested stakeholders.
Why is ESG important for BRCGS certificated Sites?
As an industry that accounts for 70% of global freshwater withdrawal and a quarter of all global greenhouse gas emissions, food production will almost certainly come under greater scrutiny.
Food manufacturers and retailers will need to mobilise to address Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) imperatives to meet growing public activism and emerging government regulation. The food industry is currently behind the curve.
