Building upon their global collaboration, the Vive programme and Bonsucro are delighted to announce two significant developments in their working relationship.
VIVE achieves advanced alignment
The Vive Farm and Facility Modules have been benchmarked by Bonsucro, and demonstrate ‘Advanced Alignment’ with the global Bonsucro Production Standard Mill and Farm Level.
Vive has been developed as a global continuous improvement scheme for cane and beet sugar supply chains. Vive enables sustainability performance to be measured and improvement objectives to be set and tracked at all stages along the supply chain.
Verification of results of sustainability performance is done through second, or third party audit, as per individual client preference.
Bonsucro supports Vive sustainability claims
The Vive Farm and Facility Modules have been evaluated as 100% full alignment with Bonsucro’s Core Indicators, Mill and Farm Level. Sugarcane that is verified by the Vive programme to have been produced in compliance with all these core indicators has achieved an important sustainability milestone.
Appreciating this achievement, any sugar that meets this ‘Core Indicator Level’ through Vive can be supported by Bonsucro, and recognised by customers as compliant with the mill and farm level core indicators of the Bonsucro Production standard, verified by Vive.
