This is AIC’s first sustainability roadmap. It is to inform members, policy-makers and stakeholders, of where we have come - but more importantly what our 2050 goals are. We have aligned our thinking with those sustainability goals which we can influence. This is a live document, and we would welcome input into its successful implementation.
To assist with the smooth and consistent process of reviewing environmental permits for the feed sector, AIC and EA, with the help of a pilot site, are working on a common approach to the benefit of all members. Further information (also applicable to companies operating in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland) is provided in this briefing:
A common means of measuring the sustainability of agricultural inputs, farming systems and supply chains is essential to reduce confusion and inertia and to create a level playing for all parties involved.
The AIC Sustainability Roadmap was designed with a clear purpose in guiding AIC’s collective work, its direction of travel and to help member companies align their activities and planning. A year after its publication, it is time for an update on progress against the various parts of the Roadmap.
