The SMART analysis and, above all, the possibility of comparing conventional and organic cocoa production systems have given us a deep insight into the sustainability of our cocoa producers in Ecuador and confirmed the importance of organic farming for small farmers in the tropics. On the basis of the results, we now know where they are already doing very well and where there is still room for improvement. This enables us to focus and effectively manage our sustainability commitment.
SMART has proven to be an excellent tool for assessing the status quo. It has clearly shown us in which areas we can make the most efficient use of our sustainability commitment.
The SMART analysis has confirmed that the efforts of Wassergut Canitz GmbH with regard to groundwater protection in connection with stable ecological, economic and socially responsible land management are successful and long-term oriented.
Only when we know where we stand can we develop further in a strategic way. We deliberately chose SMART because the tool makes it possible to compare the sustainability performance of farms. SMART provides us with ideal support so that we can carry our performance as far as possible to the consumer.
We Biosüdtirol farmers are real stubborn heads and have stubbornly set ourselves the goal of being more sustainable. We are more motivated by an ideal than by minimum standards. The SFS team has been very empathetic in assessing our sustainability and thanks to the SMART analysis we have a clear picture and can compare ourselves. Now we know where we stand, where we can improve and, above all, how we can improve. Because we agree with the SFS team: “Sustainability per se is not a condition, but an ongoing process”.
Sustainability is a core business value of Bio Partner. SMART offers an encompassing and sound base for our future sustainability engagement.
Once you start digging into the results […] you will become eager to chase after ways of how to improve! […] For all companies, that are both committed to sustainability and willing to dedicate some money – this is a Swiss tool which I recommend unreservedly!
Achieving the vision of sustainable agriculture and food production requires clear standards for the entire supply chain. Otherwise the term sustainability degenerates into a mere marketing trend. SMART sets these standards and creates the necessary basis for a credible and comparable sustainability assessment.
SMART enables us to efficiently and holistically assess and compare the sustainability of farms on a global scale.
The application of SMART showed us precisely how and in which areas we can improve our sustainability performances in the future. This allowed us to set the basis for the development of a professional sustainability management at Allos.
Farm managers – and in larger farms and companies also the employees – have a significant impact on ecological, social and economic effects. This means, sustainability origins from optimal business practices. SMART is an excellent tool to support this undertaking.
SMART gives us the ability to externally communicate our sustainability performance and shows us topics where we can steadily and gradually develop a sustainable future. The analysis is very detailed and has exceeded our expectations.
SMART allowed us a detailed insight into our sustainability performance in a very efficient way and gave us valuable information on how to optimise our company.
