Oxfam’s agricultural sourcing scorecard: food and beverage companies must do more to tackle climate change
Oxfam’s ‘Behind the Brands’ assesses the companies’ policies and commitments to improve food security and sustainability. It looks at how well they perform on issues relating to transparency, women, workers, farmers, land, water, and climate. In the latest ‘scorecard’ of March 2015, which rates the agricultural sourcing policies of the top 10 international food and drink companies, Unilever has come top of a ‘scorecard’. Oxfam calls on the Big 10 to face up to the scale of greenhouse gas emissions produced through their supply chains, and address the deforestation and unsustainable land-use practices.
