Sustainability standards: In the mainstream

image of Sustainability standards: In the mainstream

With a growing global population and increasing consumption, improving and maintaining access to resources (e.g. water, food, energy) will continue to be a major sustainable development challenge far into the future (Stigson, 2013). Fortunately, many opportunities exist along international supply chains to meet resource shortfalls, ranging from improving yields to reducing inputs and waste. Adopting more sustainable production practices will be fundamental to achieving long-term resource security, and voluntary sustainability standards (VSS) provide a means to adopt production and trade practices that enable social, environmental and economic sustainability.
