Measuring agricultural sustainability
Designed by BASF, AgBalance™ is a tool that objectively measures and evaluates the sustainability performance of agricultural products or processes across all three pillars: economy, environment and society. This allows all of us who are passionate about the land and food to advance sustainable farming through informed, fact-based decision making.
By sharing our expertise and know-how, we are supporting farmers to make a better life for themselves, their families and their communities.
With AgBalance™ BASF is helping to address essential questions such as:
- What are the key sustainability drivers for any given agricultural production system?
- What conditions are negatively impacting sustainability in agriculture?
- How can we make agricultural production systems more sustainable?
To ascertain the methodology of AgBalance (version 1.0) with regard to coherence and transparency BASF submitted it to the global expert agency DNV Business Assurance and has received their independent assurance.
