Is environmental justice necessary for human well-being? Comparative analysis of certification schemes, inclusive business, and solidarity economy strategies

Project description

Effective private-sector strategies for human well-being

There is an urgent need to reshape the effects of agricultural investment, land use and trade on human well-being. Unparalleled concentrations in agri-food value chains are increasing global inequality, and land grabbing is threatening the lives of millions. This makes it necessary for the private sector to develop strategies to protect and enhance human well-being in a fair manner. However, current science is inconclusive on which strategies are most effective and how limitations may be addressed. The EU-funded COMPASS project analyses a range of strategies of the private sector – such as inclusive businesses, certification schemes, and solidarity economies – to develop a compass of how recognition of environmental justice in these strategies may support or hinder human well-being.
