Bonsucro has developed and is maintaining a voluntary global metric standard with the objective of improving social, environmental, and economic sustainability of sugarcane farming and of production of ethanol and sugar. This Outcome Report is an exercise, carried out by the Bonsucro Secretariat, to assess and communicate about the initial results of Bonsucro’s certified members in relation to the Bonsucro Production Standard. Besides the outcomes of certification , Bonsucro also monitors closely: the results of its own operations through a series of internal performance indicators; Independent research carried out on Bonsucro; Data submitted as part of the Annual Report of Bonsucro members.

On certification, Bonsucro’s Monitoring and Evaluation System (M&E) focuses on 14 Key Priority Indicators. They were chosen by the Secretariat and brought to the scrutiny of Bonsucro members. These indicators were adopted by the Board of Directors in early 2014 and are directly related to Bonsucro’s Theory of Change, which was designed in consultation with members.
