How it works...

Origin Green’s food and drink manufacturing members commit to a mandatory mix of target areas specified by the Origin Green Charter. The mandatory areas, from which targets are set, form the basis of a business’s 3-5 year sustainability plan. The plan is independently verified by international verification specialists, Mabbett, to ensure the targets are viable and robust. Each plan is reviewed annually and monitored for progress against the set targets.
