The Delta Framework aims to harmonise the way we measure and report progress on key sustainability goals in the agricultural commodities sector.

The Delta Project has been developed to align the measurement and reporting on sustainability performance at farm level across sustainability standards and commodities. The project seeks to help create a clear view of the collective ability of multiple sustainability standards and initiatives to progress towards the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Complementing existing standards, initiatives and schemes, a Delta Framework will be created to enable both public and private sectors to efficiently report on their commitments to the SDGs, while creating more value for farmers regarding the performance data they provide.

Through the Delta Project, we will:

Rethink …

… standards practices on sustainability performance monitoring and create a common understanding on the information needs of cross-sector supply chain actors

Enable …

… companies to universally link their business contributions to sustainability performance and harmonise agricultural sector monitoring for governments

Add value …

…  for producers by establishing data usage principles, unified feedback mechanisms and open source contextualisation links.
