Development of Sustainability Self-Assessment Tools

Blue North has been commissioned to develop a range of commodity-specific Sustainability self-assessment tools for the UK retailer  J.Sainsbury’s.


The tools, which reflect our experience in supporting farm-level buy-in and engagement in sustainability programs, are designed to serve first and foremost as value-adding management tools for farm owners and managers.







As such, the tools contain comprehensive guidance notes and reporting features aimed at supporting farmers in the the proactive identification of risks and opportunities affecting the long term productivity and viability of their farming businesses.


The intention is that the tools will be deployed as part of the roll-out of J.Sainsbury’s sustainability strategy across all of its key commodities.
