In order to deliver socially and environmentally responsible sourcing commitments, companies need to understand where the commodities they buy are produced. This is often complex, as there may be many different stages between farmers and the direct supplier.

We provide support by:

  • mapping out these complex supply chains,
  • identifying where commodities are produced and
  • assessing the risks and opportunities in each origin.

Using this understanding, we then help companies to plan the most effective ways to drive change and reward good practice.

We encourage companies to take action both within and beyond their own supply chains. Within their supply chains, they can act both individually and in collaboration with other supply chain companies to engage suppliers and address issues. Beyond their supply chain they can support landscape or sector initiatives in production origins.

We also help companies to increase transparency and accountability by monitoring and reporting on the progress of their suppliers and the production landscapes they source from.

We have applied the five element approach of ACRES to a suite of commodity toolkits
