The next step in the process is the verification and certification of the farms involved in this program, in partnership with Preferred by Nature.
Preferred by Nature is a non-profit organization with 25 years of experience with certification systems in over 100 countries.
The Preferred by Nature (CFM) Carbon Footprint Verification and Support Program is assisting Minerva Foods in implementing credible and responsible climate actions.
It is also in line with internationally recognized standards such as the GHG Protocol, PAS standards and ISO 14064. In the case of Minerva Foods, it will allow systematic management of the carbon footprint of supplier farms and the implementation of targets and strategies to reduce greenhouse gases.
The verification program, with annual audits, allows the monitoring of agricultural activities, showing improvements in the carbon balance through the implementation of low carbon emission practices.
