What are Bonsucro Credits?

Bonsucro Credits are the straightforward way for companies to support sustainable sugarcane producers around the globe.

A Bonsucro Credit is proof that a unit of sugarcane, raw sugar, ethanol or molasses has been sustainably produced in accordance with Bonsucro’s Production Standard. 

What are Bonsucro Credits?

The Process

On-Market and Off-Market Trading

The Credit Trading Platform provides two ways to trade credits - On- and Off-Market.

  • On-Market Trades are carried out through the platform. Bids to sell and offers to buy are matched automatically based on price. Sellers cannot select who they sell to, nor can buyers choose to buy from a certain seller - the auction is blind. 
    • This is ideal for companies who do not have a preference for who they trade with.
  • Off-Market Trades are negotiated between buyers and sellers outside of the platform. Once a deal has been made, the buyers and sellers of the Credits must then use the Credit Trading Platform to register and confirm the deal. 
    • Trading off-market allows buyers to negotiate with existing suppliers or to emulate physical supply chains.
