15 years | 3 evolutionary steps
1.0 The initiative (2005-2010)
Built a credible multi-stakeholder organisation for better sugarcane, initially focused on creating a global, objective performance standard for everything that mattered about producing sugarcane and its primary derived products.
2.0 The certification scheme (2011-2015)
Launched certification in 2011 under a new brand name of Bonsucro and for the next four years demonstrated the ability to manage and maintain both the framework behind the Standard as well as a credible third party certification.
3.0 The global sugarcane platform (2016 onwards)
Responding to stakeholders and recognising significant shifts in industry and development
thinking (role of certification and standards organisations), Bonsucro is repositioning itself to become the global change platform for sugarcane.
