Sustainability standards are guidelines used by producers, manufacturers, traders, retailers, and service providers to develop good environmental, social, ethical, and food safety practices. They play a central role in global trade, and greatly contribute to the improvement of environmental and social compliance in supply chains.
Standards Map presents in-depth information on over 300 voluntary sustainability standards and seeks to provide transparent, credible information to ensure that economic actors take informed decisions when transitioning towards sustainable production and trade.
Navigating and understanding the plethora of standards has become a very difficult task for many producers, exporters, trade support institutions and policy makers.
All stakeholders need to understand standards, including their differences (areas covered, methodology used, etc.), and how they can aid efforts towards sustainability.
Within its unique search and comparison tool on standards, the Standards Map helps making sense of all standards data, and helps all stakeholders find the information they need on standards in any sector or area of interest.
