Increase Capacity & Attend Training
We try to make learning about sugarcane sustainability easy, so we host a variety of training courses for practitioners and change-enablers.
During these sessions, you can learn everything from the fundamentals of the Bonsucro Standards, to Bonsucro Connect and Certification. We can even develop a unique training programme, tailored to your individual needs.
Perform Gap Analysis
The Bonsucro Calculator, part of Bonsucro Connect, calculates compliance with the Production Standard. Fill it out to see how the mill and farms compare. A gap analysis between current results and the Standard is the ideal starting point, after which a work plan can be developed to address the potential gaps.
“The Bonsucro Calculator gave us a methodology based on a metric system that facilitates a measurable and manageable way to obtain continuous improvements and the sustainable development of the company.” - Gustavo Robleto, Agricultural Researcher, SER San AntonioAccess Bonsucro Connect
