Lucille Felipe has seen environmental and social benefits from selling credits:
"Financial return from selling credits is always very good. But far before that, it’s encouraged us to give back to the environment. By following the Bonsucro Standard, we contribute to our environment, and we value and dignify the labour of the rural man. This is all worth the dedication to obtain such a hard-earned seal.”
Multiple improvements have been made to her farm infrastructure, including a new bathroom for employees, a renovated office, stronger electrical system, a waste box for washing personal protective equipment, a biodigester tank and a storage room for agrochemicals.
These will all help Lucille run her business more professionally and effectively.
