Given the growing importance of sustainability across global supply chains, the Sustainable Corn Exports (SCE) platform seeks to address the need to provide a better understanding of the production practices associated to U.S. corn. The SCE platform allows corn buyers in international markets to receive documentation linking their shipments to the records of sustainable corn produced in the United States under the framework of the Corn Sustainability Assurance Protocol.
Exports are vital to global economic development and to U.S. agriculture’s profitability. Sustainable Corn Exports supports more than 300,000 farmers in communicating and validating their commitment to continuous improvement in the production of corn to consumers all over the world.
OUR RECORD OF SUSTAINABILITY
Each marketing year, SCE establishes the total volume of sustainable corn produced in the U.S. under the CSAP framework, which is then incorporated into the SCE web-platform to enable the issuance of shipment-specific Records of Sustainability (ROS). Each ROS allows corn exporters and importers to record and track the volumes of sustainable corn traded within their supply chains, using a mass-balance approach.
The records of sustainability issued by Sustainable Corn Exports aim to help exporters and importers of U.S. corn to comply with existing and future international sustainability requirements and procurement guidelines.
