Sustainable Agriculture

FEDIOL has a long-standing commitment to sustainable development and strives to ensure that its three main components (economic, social and environmental) are consistently taken into account. As sector of the first transformation industry, FEDIOL actively contributes to the development of harmonized and balanced sustainability criteria in close cooperation with the authorities, notably when pursuing sustainability objectives in the EU Common Agricultural Policy. Industry and civil society-led initiatives also form an important part of our activity to promote sustainability. FEDIOL is actively involved in multi-stakeholder platforms (RTRS and RSPO) aimed at designing voluntary schemes, developing good agricultural practices and implementing these guidelines among the participating farming communities as a means to support the sustainable sourcing of agricultural products.
