ESG Food and Agriculture Benchmarking Initiative
The Foundation undertook to benchmark 50-top companies across the value chain in agriculture and food space in India and developed the India Food and Agriculture Benchmarking Report 2022 using the metrics and methodology developed by World Benchmarking Alliance and The Food Foundation (UK). The toolkit uses 45 indicators covering five areas, namely – nutrition, environment, social inclusion, governance, and strategy.
Aligned with the UN Food System Summit 2021, it has three objectives –
- support the companies to create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system
- help consumers make the right choices
- inform the investors about investing their money responsibly
