Sustainability Claims Portal

Sustainability claims are distinctive marks, marketing labels and brands, developed by public and private sector institutions and placed on products and services attesting that their products and supply chains incorporate the pillars of sustainability (economic, social and environmental) into their agricultural production, processing, manufacturing and export processes and services.

Sustainability claims include agriculture
(e.g. organic), more equitable trading practices
(e.g. fair trade), social responsibility (e.g. child labour-free), environment friendly products (e.g. natural or recycled), as well as products chosen for their unique geographical or cultural value (e.g. geographical indicators).
