How does a truly sustainable business sustain itself?
Growing consumer, retailer and political interest in how our food is produced means that a sustainable business strategy is no longer an option for today’s food and farming businesses – it must be a priority.
Our Sustainability Team recognises the importance of meeting international goals, regulatory targets and consumer demands to improve the financial and environmental sustainability of our clients’ businesses.
Our clients face competing challenges from growing populations, climate change, food waste, land degradation, fossil fuel use, and ethical employment. Promar’s ‘4R’ model helps our clients to understand this and develop a roadmap for their sustainable strategy, targeting their key focus areas.
The ‘4R’ model
Whether you are responsible for managing a farm, setting future policy, or focusing on procuring or exporting quality goods for your supply chain.
This model creates an adaptable roadmap to develop a sustainable business strategy to ensure:
- Long-term security of supply
- Protection and enhancement of brand values
Using our extensive experience and knowledge, we work with policy makers, government agencies, retail operators, industry associations and land-based businesses to critical examine their operations and offer tailored and flexible farm-to-fork solutions for business of all sizes across the supply chain.
Our approach is based on identification of practical and realistic solutions for our clients to grow their business and demonstrate how they are tackling the global sustainability challenge.
Developing a positive sustainability strategy requires a long-term view of the full supply chain, not just an individual business. Our Sustainability Team can create a tailored approach for an individual client to look at core elements of the business and supply chain network.
Encouraging sustainability across the supply chain promotes:
- Better working systems
- Leadership in industry
- Engagement across the supply chain
This ensures that improvements aim to be good for the environment, but also:
- Reduce waste and costs
- Increase efficiency
- Encourage profit through innovation and collaboration.
