  • Ethical Audits

    Ethical Audits

    SIZA (Sustainability Initiative of South Africa) is an assessment that is generally carried out as a standalone audit on GLOBALG.A.P. certified farms.

    Recognition of the completion of the SIZA assessment will help producers demonstrate compliance with both national and international labour law.

    What is Sustainability?
    The concept of sustainability is composed of three main pillars:
    • Economic

    • Environmental

    • Social

    How do SIZA and sustainability support one another?

    SIZA is primarily concerned with the Social element of sustainability, but as these three concepts are intrinsically linked, it will also have a greater or lesser effect on both Economic and Environmental aspects.

    One way to try to ensure the farming business remains an attractive place of work (to what seems to be a more limited pool of workers), is to use these Ethical standards to demonstrate maintenance of sound facilities and conditions of employment.

    These standards of Good Practice link directly to social sustainability and as a consequence, will help have a positive impact on the economic sustainability of farming and fishing-based businesses.

    Additional Information:

    While SIZA is a voluntary assessment many retailers require suppliers to have, or commit to having, these certifications to supply goods to them.

    The SIZA certificates are valid for a maximum of a three-year period, after which time the Ethical system will be reviewed and the certificate will be reissued after completion of the renewal audit.

    SIZA, https://www.siza.co.za , the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa, provides a platform for agricultural stakeholders to ensure ethical and environmentally sustainable trade. This platform monitors care for the environment and compliance with labour legislation. Our aim is to encourage continuous improvement in practices over time in excess of the minimum legal requirements. We engage directly with our stakeholders throughout the value chain in order to manage risks and identify needs and issues. Interventions and support tools are created by measuring member compliance over time.

    Assessments and certification are shown to make ‘Sustainability’ improvements for primary production in the food industry, in several ways:
    • Positive change results from many sustainability type assessments and standards

    • Environmental improvements can be measured

    • Social change (with improved labour conditions)

    • Creating a better understanding of legal requirements and improved practice
