Details

June 11, 2021 marks a milestone for human rights: the Corporate Due
Diligence Act to prevent human rights violations in supply chains passed the
German Bundestag. This means that companies in Germany must develop
processes to manage human rights risks. Sustainability certifications are an
important part of the toolkit. For the FSS team, this means: if certification is
applied, a holistic approach is desirable, taking into account all human rights
that are at risk in agricultural production.

The Food Security Standard (FSS) takes into account the Right to adequate Food in agricultural production. Applying the FSS in sustainability certification systems ensures that farmers, workers, and neighbouring communities are food secure.

Welthungerhilfe is one of the largest private aid organisations in Germany, independent of politics and religion. It was established in 1962, as the German section of the “Freedom from Hunger Campaign”.

Meo Carbon Solutions is an independent consulting company with a focus on sustainable development solutions, smallholder empowerment and social compliance, sustainability certification and carbon footprint improvement. Meo is working on a global scale and supporting the application of the FSS.
