Sustainable Sourcing of Agricultural Raw Materials Project (2012-2016)

The Agricultural Sustainability Institute and the Information Center for the Environment at UC Davis undertook an initiative to enhance the sustainability of agricultural raw materials sourcing across the supply chain. This goal was to assist food companies and other food system stakeholders by creating publicly-available and scientifically-validated information and tools to advance sustainability in agricultural sourcing decisions. The project involved a critical review of sustainability issues, best practices and indicators of key dimensions of food system sustainability at various scales.
