First Sustainability Report

of German Agriculture

The German Agricultural Society (DLG) is one of the major German organisations in the agricultural and food industries. There are many opinions on the sustainability of agriculture. Now the facts are available. Right on time for its 130th anniversary, the DLG is presenting its first ever sustainability report on German agriculture. The report, which is based on a comprehensive study on sustainability, has a special feature: It documents the sustainability performance not only as usual by means of key figures from the areas of ecology, economy and social responsibility, but also by means of an aggregated sustainability index. This special index, made up of three so-called key indicators, provides an overview of agriculture’s sustainability progression.
