About Bonsucro

Bonsucro is a multi-stakeholder association established to reduce the environmental and social impacts of sugarcane, by designing a Standard and program to transform the sugarcane industry. Bonsucro certified sugarcane products, processes and services will soon be available for purchase. Bonsucro certified products and companies will be third-party verified by Bonsucro's Standard, which provides principles and criteria for environmental responsibility, social development, economic return, and good industry practices.
A Bonsucro certificate is internationally recognised and respected. By achieving a certificate, you can improve your image, achieve sustainability procurement goals, build partnerships to tackle sustainability issues together.
There are two types of Bonsucro certification– one on the production end of the supply chain and one on the trading side of the supply chain. The two work together to ensure that sugarcane production benefits producer communities, ensures people are treated fairly and creates long-lasting, traceable supply chains.
