Sustainability Metrics

Sustainability Metrics measure key impact areas and trends over time, foster productive dialogue and promote progress toward sustainability.


Field to Market:

The Field to Market (FtM) initiative was started by leading commodity crop producers, processers, and retailers to develop outcomes-based indicators of agricultural sustainability. The Center has worked with this group for over a year to support the science and data needs. CARS participates in the Executive and Outcomes Indicators Committees.
