Why we do it?

A framework for everyone

Preferred by Nature’s Sustainability Framework is a universal framework representing core aspects of sustainability. By integrating the essential aspects of sustainability across all commodities and production landscapes, the Sustainability Framework is a good starting point for those seeking to deliver real impact.

The Framework can be applied through a risk-based approach to attain the Preferred by Nature Certification. Additionally, it has been aligned with the requirements of the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR) to assist affected sectors in achieving compliance.

The work done for us by Preferred by Nature and their Brazilian partner for this collaboration, Imaflora, is excellent. The report that was produced is very good, but when you look at the raw data backing that report up, it is really a goldmine. It is the encyclopedia of sugar cane sourcing in this part of Brazil.
