B&S Sustainable Choice
Products made for a positive impact.
Having trusted information is key to making responsible choices, and we want to make it easy for our customers to do so. That is why we have created B&S Sustainable Choice, a special product selection to highlight the brands and products in our portfolio that follow responsible practices.
This selection is the result of a careful screening of sustainability criteria that we carry out together with our suppliers. It is intended as a guide for our customers to make informed choices and can be found as an additional section on our King of Reach platform, easily identifiable with logos according to the topic addressed by each product.
How we do this
We carefully selected sustainability labels, certifications and standards that are considered reliable and transparent. In our B&S Sustainable Choice Scorecard we explain how we arrived to this selection as well as our methodology used.
In addition, our Supplier Code of Conduct clarifies what we expect from our suppliers in relation to environmental, social and governance matters. This also means we expect our direct suppliers to operate and collaborate with partners that comply with the minimum standards set out in the Code.
A growing selection
Sustainable Choice is and will be an ongoing effort, and we will continue to work with our suppliers to build a solid portfolio of sustainable products and provide transparent information. This is just the beginning, and we count on all of our partners and customers to truly make a difference.
Brands and products highlighted by our Sustainable Choice selection meet specific sustainability aspects attribute to one or more of the following areas:
1. Nature protection to reduce negative impacts on the environment
Products manufactured while protecting ecosystems and biodiversity, promoting water management and preventing pollution. Examples include organic produce, MSC, Rainforest Alliance, climate neutral products.

3. Animal welfare to product animals' quality of life
