Mission and Work

Mission

A GREENER WORLD exists to provide consumer-friendly solutions to challenges including climate change, natural resource constraints, an ever-growing population, and the plight of rural communities; and to offer practical guidance, resources, and support on achieving truly sustainable farming systems.

Program 1

$1.5m annual program spend • Certified animal welfare approved by agw (awa) is an independent, nonprofit farm certification program. Awa audits, certifies, and promotes independent family farmers across the U.S. and canada who raise livestock outdoors on pasture or range, using truly sustainable agriculture methods. Awa is the only farm certification that guarantees animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range for their entire lives on an independent family farm using truly sustainable agriculture methods. No other food label offers these distinctions. Awa is one of only two certifiers in the U.S. to require audited, high-welfare transport and slaughter practices. Awa is also the only certifier in the U.S. Accredited to iso 17065, providing the highest level of oversight and scrutiny.

Program 2

$374k annual program spend • Certified grassfed by agw is the only certification and logo in the U.S. and canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100 percent grass and forage diet, raised outdoors on pasture or range, and managed according to the highest welfare and environmental standards on an independent family farm. While other grassfed labels exist, none can match the breadth, integrity, and transparency that certified grassfed by agw offers.

Certified Non

$59k annual program spend • Gmo by agw is the only food label in North America that helps consumers avoid genetically modified food ingredients and support high- welfare, environmentally sustainable food animal production. Available to farmers, ranchers and food producers, the certified non-gmo by agw label guarantees food products are not only produced without genetically engineered/modified feed, supplements or ingredients, but also come from animals raised according the highest animal welfare standards in the industry, animal welfare approved (awa).

In their words

Empowering Sustainable Solutions in Agriculture

With so much negativity around food and farming today, A Greener World serves as a beacon of positive change. We exist to promote and support real-life farming models to the public and offer practical guidance on achieving truly sustainable livestock farming systems to farmers and ranchers.

Established in 2014, our evolving mission has four key components:

  1. To identify and promote agricultural systems that have a positive impact on the environment, society and animals (wild and farmed)
  2. To educate consumers about the environmental, social and animal outcomes of their food purchasing decisions
  3. To establish and promote trusted farm certification programs that help reconnect the consumer and food producer by encouraging—and rewarding—positive farm management changes
  4. To support independent farmers who are committed to sustainable livestock production

Why?

We believe the way we farm, the nutritional quality of the meat, milk and eggs produced, and the impact of farming systems on wildlife, the environment and wider society are all connected. Our goal is to offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for anyone interested in food, farming and sustainability, providing simple solutions based on your own personal concerns. We’re extremely proud of our reputation among consumer groups, farmers and the wider food industry as a pragmatic, farming-based organization driven by practical science and common sense.

Helping You To Take Action

Choosing products with real sustainability credentials is one of the most important and yet easiest everyday activities you can take to address a range of important issues–from improving your personal health to tackling climate change!
