GLOBALG.A.P. Partners with Sustainable Rice Platform

Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) was established in 2011 and is co-convened by the UN Environment Programme and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). Their intention is to promote sustainability and research efficiency in the global rice trade sector. SRP pursues market transformation and public policy initiatives to drive change towards more sustainable standards, which will improve the lives of rice producers and minimize the environmental impact of rice production.

GLOBALG.A.P. has supported SRP to build a viable auditing and assurance program and since 2020 manages the approval process of SRP Verification Bodies (VBs) that will be responsible of the inspection of rice producers according to the SRP Standad.

This process incorporates SRP Assurance Scheme  Requirements for Verification Bodies and Auditors/Inspectors.
