Founded in 2008, Bonsucro is a global non-profit, multi-stakeholder organisation fostering the sustainability of the sugarcane sector through its leading metric-based certification scheme and its support for continuous improvement for members.
With an ever-increasing membership list counting nearly 200 members from 27 countries representing all areas of the supply chain, and a board that is similarly representative across the industry, Bonsucro is a highly robust, transparent and democratic organisation that has the resources and commitment to bring about its vision: A sugarcane sector that is continuously improving and verified as sustainable.
Reef Catchments became aware of Bonsucro through the Project Catalyst Initiative and in 2009 became a civil society member of Bonsucro. For some time Reef Catchments and Catchment Solutions were involved in supporting operational and governance aspects of Bonsucro.
Bonsucro helps define globally applicable performance-based principles, criteria, indicators and standards for sugarcane production that take into account local conditions and circumstances, based on a credible and transparent process focused on the key sustainability drivers in sugarcane production.
