The Crops Working Group

The Crops Working Group offers members a pre-competitive space to share, collaborate, and jointly problem solve on key sustainability challenges.

Made up of over 100 food and drink companies from across the entire crops value chain, we are a community of committed sustainability professionals representing a diverse range of organisations. Our members can be small, niche companies or large multinationals, with a range of experience in sustainable agriculture.

We work closely with our members to maximise the benefits of the full suite of SAI Platform tools and programmes. Our role is to enable the improvement, adoption, and scaling of the Farm Sustainability Assessment and the new Regenerative Agriculture Programme.

Spanning all crops within our member base globally, the Crops Working Group is an instrumental facilitator for collective change across the food and drink sector. Together, we catalyse widespread behavioural change by leveraging and strengthening our collective knowledge, capability, and global influence.

In response to the rapidly shifting landscape in which the food and drink sector operates, we have developed a Climate Smart Agriculture workstream with the mandate to build an aligned industry approach for measurable GHG emissions mitigation and resilience building across agriculture.

Key Activities

  • GHG Learning Journey Through a sector wide ‘GHG Learning Journey,’ we are building an aligned industry approach to measurable GHG emissions mitigation and resilience building across agriculture. Leveraging the experiences of our members in real time, we are working together collaboratively to extract best practices and learnings along the way.
  • Climate Conversation Series In partnership with our members and key external experts, the objective of the Climate Conversation Series is to grow the collective capability of our members and to mobilise aligned change across agriculture. This will be achieved through a knowledge build webinar series, which pulls together global expertise, best practice, and key innovations.
