GLRPPR Sector Resource: Sustainability Guide and Self-Assessment Tool

Title:
Sustainability Guide and Self-Assessment Tool

Abstract:
The guide is intended to assist producers in understanding four key areas of sustainability -- stewardship of resources, environmental impacts, social accountability, and economic success/viability. The guide also provides a means for producers to share their story about practices and processes that many already incorporate in their operations. By completing their own evaluation of their sustainability programs, producers can develop concrete information that they can use in their own business, or choose to share with others to explain their commitment to sustainable practices. Additionally, the guide includes a Companion Metrics Tool that highlights specific outcome measurements that producers can use to track results over time. Together, these two parts afford producers a tracking tool to combine a practice-based analysis of major steps they are taking in enhancing sustainability, with key, outcome-based information. The Sustainability Guide and Self-Assessment Tool is free to United Fresh members and $75 for non-members.
