How the WRP certification benefits the environment

Sourcing sustainably through the World Reform Project certification program is an opportunity for your company to make a public and positive impact on the world. 

World Reform Project Certified farms are better and safer places to live and work.

The World Reform Project Certified partners are better for the planet and more sustainable in the long term. This is because certified farmers and partners aim to protect natural resources and the environment. They use land, water, and energy carefully. Certified farmers use fewer artificial fertilizers and pesticides, prevent pollution, and manage waste. They learn how to preserve forested and protected areas, which in turn supports plants and wildlife. Farmers and farm workers are also trained to use climate-smart farming methods and adapt their growing practices to the effects of climate change.

 

Show your commitment to the Environment

Consumers increasingly want to know where their products come from. They want to trust that products were sourced with respect for people and nature.

 

The World Reform Project certification benefits your company by providing independent assurance of your responsible environmental efforts. 

When you work with the World Reform Project, your organization benefits businesses all along the supply chain. This includes not only farmers, but also traders, manufacturers, brands, and retailers. Both shareholders and consumers can see the credible, positive impact you are making on the environment.

 

Sharing your sustainability commitment with your customers helps to boost your reputation, which increases consumer trust and loyalty.

Create a better future

At the core of the World Reform Project certification is our mission to create a better future for the environment by making responsible business the new normal. Certified farmers and foresters are able to grow better crops, adapt to climate change, and increase their productivity. At the same time, they are reducing costs. Together, these practices contribute to a more promising future for farmers, reforesters, and their communities. They also benefit your company as you have reliable access to a high-quality, reliable supply of certified products.

Safeguard your Corporations reputation

When choosing a certification program, credibility is everything. The World Reform Project Certified seal is a recognized symbol of high standards. 

Our certification illustrates to both businesses and consumers that that product contributes to a better future for the environment.
