Across the agri-food sector ambitious targets are being set to reduce the environmental footprint of producing and supplying food. Metrics and benchmarks are being increasingly deployed to operate, compete, and contribute to economic viability in this rapidly changing agri-food world. Multiple private and public partners in Canada are involved in an effort to create a national sustainability index for the agri-food sector with a strong link to, and consideration of, the substantive work occurring in other jurisdictions around the globe.

CPMA is a partner in this effort and will continue to update members on the efforts and provide the outputs as they are developed.
