Today, GSI launches its sustainability report, disclosing data across 14 indicators for all members.
WWF International sees GSI as a model that other industries could learn from.
“What makes GSI stand out is that they brought together company CEOs and empowered technical staff to work together and do the hard work of addressing the sector’s critical challenges – feed, welfare and impact. Through information-sharing to find solutions and motivate environmental improvements, they flattened the learning curve for everybody on how to make the industry more sustainable. The model has proven to be successful and deliver results, and now we need other sectors to follow suit.” - Jason Clay, Senior Vice President, Markets & Executive Director, Markets Institute, World Wildlife Fund
