Feeding a growing world population whilst still protecting our environment is extremely challenging
Agriculture places significant pressure on natural resources and our environment and non-sustainable agricultural practices, seeking maximum yield with minimum regard for the environmental and human consequences, can result in destruction of habitat, soil erosion and degradation, amongst other things
Friend of the Earth is an international certification scheme for sustainable agriculture and breeding whose principles are based on the safeguarding and protection of the entire ecosystem. Sustainable agriculture is a type of farming that focuses on producing long-term crops and livestock without compromising the ability of current or future generations to meet their needs, based on the principle of maintaining a sustainable balance between the demands for food production and the preservation of our natural environment.
