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.
The AIC has submitted its response to the Government’s consultation entitled Due diligence on forest risk commodities. The consultation considers whether the Government should introduce legislation that would require a ‘small number of larger businesses’ to guarantee that commodities that can be responsible for deforestation have been produced legally, in accordance with relevant, local laws.
The Agricultural Industries Confederation (AIC) is delighted to share this vision of a roadmap for a sustainable food chain which has been written in consultation with the industry and stakeholders. We welcome the opportunity to develop our work with politicians and policy makers in Cardiff, Holyrood, Stormont and Westminster.
