Regenerative certification for real change
Uniquely, the farmer and their regenerative experts develop a plan for the operation of the land being farmed. This plan is reviewed by a panel of experts that approve the vision for the farm’s regenerative journey, which is measured and audited annually. This approach allows for true regional and local flexibility while adhering to regenerative principles, giving confidence that consumers and stakeholders. It has the added advantage of being a detailed management plan, allowing the farmer to focus on delivery of the positive attributes.
This program functions as a management tool that helps producers meet their own regenerative goals through an audited, regenerative plan—and offers early access to regenerative markets without being certified Organic.
What Does ‘Regenerative’ Mean?
Here at A Greener World, we define Regenerative Agriculture as: A set of planned agricultural practices that ensure the holding is not depleted by agriculture practices, and over time the soil, water, air and biodiversity are improved or maintained to the greatest extent possible.
Certified Regenerative by AGW is the only label to require audited, high-welfare production, transport and slaughter practices, incorporating the respected standards of Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW—the label with the single highest impact on consumer purchasing of any food label, according to The Hartman Group.
We’re proud of AGW’s reputation for being a practical, common-sense program that’s grounded in the realities of everyday farm and ranch life. Unlike most farm certifiers, AGW’s independent trained auditors visit every farm in the program at least once a year to verify they’re meeting the standards. A Greener World’s ISO/IEC Guide 17065 accreditation guarantees independence and impartiality, offering an unrivaled level of integrity and consumer trust in the Certified Regenerative by AGW logo.
