9. Three New Sustainability Tools

Feb. 7, 2014

Last week three new reports on measuring sustainability were released. All of them are interesting and relevant for the coffee industry:
1. "Measuring Sustainability" report from COSA, the Committee on Sustainability Assessment.
2. State of Sustainability Initiatives (SSI) Review, from SSI, the Sustainable Commodity Initiative (SCI) which is a joint initiative managed by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
3. Root Capital's Social & Enviromental Due Diligence Issue Brief

Here are the websites where you can download the reports.
State of Sustainability Initiatives:

COSA Measuring Sustainability:

Social & Environmental Due Diligence:
This "Issue Brief" is especially interesting because they've also publicized the corresponding "detailed methodology", the "social scorecard" and the "environmental scorecard."
