Sustainability – Responsible, Safe and Sensitive
Sustainability incorporates operating in an environmentally responsible, safe and socially caring and economically responsible manner whilst achieving desired outcomes.
FCG assists clients achieve certification as sustainable by developing and documenting management systems that meets the specified sustainability requirements yet are practicable, workable and readily adopted by local management. In our environmental sustainability consulting, we engage with local communities to achieve the best possible outcomes for them and our clients.
Sustainable Industries have benefitted from FCG’s advice and support. We have advised clients in locations as diverse as Papua New Guinea and the Democratic Republic of Congo on meeting requirements for certification to their selected standard or requirement including the Sustainable Palm Oil RSPO Principles and Criteria, EU agricultural import requirements, Global GAP, SAN and others. Two of our consultants are approved Better Cotton Initiative Consultants.
Sustainability has been a key role of FGC for more than fifteen years. A member of the Round table on Sustainable Palm Oil, (RSPO) an organisation with members from the Industry, Environmental NGOs, Governments, Processors and Consumers, we provide a consulting service to growers and processors to assist them in meeting the requirements to be Certified as Sustainable with the associated environmental benefits whilst lifting people out of poverty.
This involves working with employees, their families, external communities, Non-Government Organisations and Company Management to identify areas where sustainable performance can be improved and recommend on solutions.
Key areas of compliance include Legal Compliance, Social Responsibility, Safety of Workers and all Stakeholders and Responsible Environmental Behaviour. Our agricultural experience and engineering capability equip us particularly well to provide reliable and cost effective advice and guidance.
