December 19, 2016 /3BL Media/ - Based on its recent benchmarking to the Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP), announced last week, SCS Global Services’ Sustainably Grown certification program is now recognized by the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), and its influential fruit and vegetables program, SIFAV (Sustainability Initiative Fruit & Vegetables).

“We welcome SCS’ Sustainably Grown certification program as a new recognized standard for social compliance. It will now be part of the SIFAV basket of standards” said Kebba Colley, Senior Program Manager at IDH. SIFAV aims to make imports of fresh produce from Africa, Asia and South America 100 percent sustainable by 2020. In addition to field level projects, member buying companies across the EU agree to source imports from the SIFAV recognized standards, which represent a common definition and understanding of sustainability.

Sustainably Grown is the first U.S.-based sustainable agriculture certification program to achieve benchmarking to both the GSCP Reference Code and Audit Process and Methodology Reference Tool, which represent international best practice in sustainable supply chains and social auditing.
