GLOBALG.A.P. Supports Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Cologne/ Amsterdam: GLOBALG.A.P. already incorporates a number of practices in line with the SDGs. On 26 September the GLOBALG.A.P. Board decided to formally visualize its current alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. Contributing to the SDGs is a collaborative effort, which is also part of GLOBALG.A.P.’s principles, and working towards GLOBALG.A.P. certification is already an important milestone towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

For the first time, all delegates of the SUMMIT had the possibility to offset the carbon footprint of their journey to the SUMMIT with carbon credits sponsored by the Gold Standard. “As a global organisation, GLOBALG.A.P. is aware of the impact of all our activities and thank the Gold Standard for this collaboration,” said GLOBALG.A.P. CEO Kristian Moeller on the eve of the SUMMIT 2016 at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.
