Framework for Sustainability Reporting

This project is seeking to create credible and tangible Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) systems for the entire agribusiness value chain. These systems will account for emissions reductions resulting from an intervention that would not have otherwise occurred. This strong, standardised, and verifiable MRV system will enhance financial products, assist in the de-risking of investments, and cultivate brand awareness and trust among consumers, both domestically and internationally, resulting in benefits flowing back to all players across the value chain, including farmers and agribusiness.
