The Sustainability Guide and Self-Assessment for Fruit and Vegetable Production has been developed by the United Fresh Produce Association Center for Global Produce Sustainability. The Center was established in 2009 through a grant from Bayer CropScience, which has enabled the Foundation to address these important issues for both growers and partners throughout the produce supply chain. The Sustainability Guide and Self-Assessment is intended to assist producers and partners in understanding four key areas of sustainability – Stewardship of Resources; Environmental Impacts; Social Accountability; and Economic Success/Viability. For fruit and vegetable producers, we believe these four areas define the most important aspects of sustainability in our industry and reflect areas where active management can enhance sustainability and cost control. This document is not an audit, nor is it meant to become a requirement. Rather, it is a tool that can be used to increase knowledge, track progress, and tell the story of our industry’s commitment to sustainability.
