“Sustainability can be experienced and measured in different ways for different types of operations, it’s hard to define it in absolute terms universally,” he said.

Saying that a sustainability initiative is comprehensive is probably less realistic than saying that sustainability is continually improving, which is a goal that is attainable for many operations, Gilmer said.

Sustainability audits, which many grower-shippers and other operations are facing, are a concern because they can be inconsistent and costly, he said.

“It’s our goal to streamline the assessment of sustainability programs so that produce industry companies can be recognized for the substantive progress they continually make in advancing sustainability,” he said.
