The State of Sustainable Markets: Statistics and Emerging Trends

Survey results from 14 sustainability standards across nine commodity areas help determine new statistics and emerging trends for sustainable production

The reports offer a comprehensive snapshot of significant growth in the use of global sustainability standards across nine sectors: bananas, cocoa, coffee, cotton, palm oil, soybeans, cane sugar, tea and forestry. They presents the latest data on area, production volume and producers for 14 major standard-setting organizations. It provides market and statistical data on the nine sectors, as well as at-a-glance tables for products and standards by country.

The reports are based on the global survey on sustainability standards, produced jointly by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL), the International Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD) and the International Trade Centre (ITC), funded by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
