Fairfood’s principles on data governance: fostering innovation in a responsible way

With due diligence legislation on the way, transparency has become a buzzword. But what exactly does this mean in practice? Our new report explains why building trust in data should go hand in hand with greater calls for transparency.

The digitisation of our global value chains brings huge opportunities to accelerate a more sustainable society. That is, one in which the production of goods is managed responsibly, without harming the environment or the people involved in this process.

With the aim of improving international operations, important information is collected, digitised and made available to stakeholders working at different points in these supply chains. But until access to technological solutions is sufficiently disseminated around the world, large doses of responsibility are still needed so that we don’t run the risk of leaving marginalised populations behind (even more so).

So how do we navigate this global flow of extra information going around? At Fairfood we believe it’s possible to manage data while creating value for all actors within the chain through partnerships that are accountable, datadriven, collaborative, inclusive and, ultimately, transparent. In this report, we tell you how.
