September 2021

  • English

Origin Green is the world’s first and only national food industry-wide sustainability programme and nine years after its initial launch a recent study shows the commercial impact it is delivering for its members.

87% of respondents agreed that Origin Green is a catalyst towards continuous improvement of sustainability performance. In addition, 90% agree that Origin Green supported the putting in place of a framework to help measure and report sustainability performance. However, not only has Origin Green played a role in the development of sustainability performance but it has also resulted in 42% of respondents noting cost savings and a further, 22% of respondents attributed new revenue generation to their independently audited sustainability credentials.
