The Good Growth Plan Open Data

Since we launched The Good Growth Plan, we’ve established a solid foundation for reporting on progress that relies on independent data collection and validation, assurance by 3rd party assurance providers, and endorsement through our implementing partners. We publish our data to be transparent, accountable, and engage with our stakeholders in a different, new kind of dialogue.

Each year, we‘ll report our progress on all six commitments and provide detailed data and definitions in accordance with the best data practices. In this way you can track and verify our dedication to doing business responsibly based on real evidence.

The Good Growth Plan - One planet. Six commitments.

Every day, our planet wakes with nearly 200,000 more mouths to feed and more farmland lost to erosion. Many people who produce the world‘s food are living in poverty, while biodiversity is disappearing fast. We have a plan to meet these challenges: The Good Growth Plan.

Its mission is to improve the sustainability of agriculture and our business through six commitments to be achieved by 2020.

We know we don‘t have all the answers. That’s why we’re working with growers, governments, NGOs and others to make a difference.
