Scope of Certification

The mill will define the area that will supply the sugarcane. It doesn't have to be all of it at this stage.

Practice Implementation

The mill, in collaboration with the farmers, implements practices that support the Standard.

Compliance Monitoring

Mills regularly monitor compliance to monitor progress towards sustainability.

The Audit

Once any gaps have been closed, the mill or farm contacts a Bonsucro Licensed Certification Body to arrange an audit. The objective is to collect proof that the mill and the supplying farms comply with the Standard.

If the audit highlights any points of non-compliance, this is an opportunity to correct them.
