As a result of the European Union (EU) Renewable Energy Directive (RED) established by the European Union in late 2010, the Australian canola export supply chain implemented a sustainability certification scheme to avoid possible trade restrictions involving canola export to European Markets.

Glencore Grain Pty Ltd currently holds an ISCC Certificate (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) and it is a requirement that our growers sign a self-declaration regarding the sustainable production of canola.

In order to be considered a sustainable supplier of canola, your farm needs to comply with the following 6 principles:

1. Crop shall not be produced on land with high biodiversity value or high carbon stock and not from peat land

2. Crop shall be produced in an environmentally responsible way

3. Safe working conditions

4. Crop production shall not violate human labour rights or land rights

5. Crop production shall take place in compliance with all applicable regional and national laws and shall follow relevant international treaties

6. Good management practices shall be implemented
