Supporting Amazon’s Climate Pledge Friendly Program

Control Union has collaborated with Amazon to help those selling products on Amazon’s online store qualify for the Climate Pledge Friendly (CPF) program. CPF enables Amazon customers to easily find more-sustainable products, by searching for those which carry the CPF badge. Program inclusion drives an average 10% increase in product page views. In order to qualify for the CPF badge, products must hold at least one of a number of trusted certifications.

The Plastic Free Certification is launching!

We are delighted to announce the upcoming launch of the Plastic Free certification for products. This vital certification helps businesses to do their part in the fight against plastic waste, and this relaunch represents our commitment to the organisations who have previously engaged with the scheme, as well as those who hope to do so in the future.

Innovative new vertical farming certification launches

A brand new certification has launched today for vertical farming – Sustainable Indoor Farming.

Vertical Farming is a rapidly growing, cutting edge, technology-driven food production system in a controlled environment, where space, water, and nutrient efficiency is maximised through growing plants in vertically stacked soil-less substrates.

Top tips for sustainable sourcing

Pressure on businesses to prioritise their social and environmental impact has never been so strong as it is today. COP26 saw renewed commitments from countries around the world to make serious endeavours to limit global warming. Meanwhile COP15, which begins in April this year, will set out a framework to protect bio-diversity, and a new United Nations resolution has recently been signed by 175 countries with the aim of ending plastic pollution.

None of this can be achieved without the collaboration from industry and businesses are being called upon to set themselves ambitious targets to limit their environmental impact, and to report on their progress towards those targets in a transparent manner.

Hitting these targets will not be possible without a strong sustainable sourcing plan from your supply chain. Sustainable procurement can help you to minimise your environmental impact, control costs and protect your public reputation.

But how can you ensure sustainability across your supply chain?

Knowledge sharing with the united nations environmental program
