“Our ambition to build sustainability into our sourcing approach is no small task. It requires a clear set of objectives, and meaningful collaboration with our many suppliers and farmers. The success of our efforts will also depend on building successful partnerships and business models with other SAI Platform members, and on working together over time to reduce carbon emissions”
