New Sustainability Standard with SAI Equivalency
Syngenta, a Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform member, released the Sustainable Outcomes in Agriculture (SOA) standard through its Cropwise™ Sustainability app. The Standard has achieved Gold-level equivalency against SAI Platform’s FSA 3.0, the highest level of equivalency. Syngenta is the first agriculture input provider to launch a standard and to receive FSA 3.0 gold-equivalency. Through this benchmark, farmers, retailers and consumer packaged goods companies can make incremental progress on their sustainability journey.
