DLG Certificate "Sustainable Agriculture – Fit for the Future"

Boost efficiency – Sharpen your profile – Improve your image

With the support of the German environmental foundation Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (BDU), the Technical University Munich-Weihenstephan, the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture (Institut für Nachhaltige Landbewirtschaftung e.V), the DLG e.V. (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – German Agricultural Society) has developed the "Sustainable Agriculture – Fit for the Future" certificate certificate.
The objective is to disseminate the principle of sustainability in agriculture and the food chain with consideration given to the following aspects:

  • Protection of soil, water, air and biodiversity
  • Improvement of climate impacts and energy efficiency
  • Optimising of fertilising and plant protection
  • Strengthening of cost effectiveness and competitiveness
  • Advanced training for farm managers and farm staff
  • Food safety and hygiene.

Environmental compatibility, cost effectiveness and social acceptance of agricultural enterprises are promoted; ecology, economics and social affairs are all assessed equally.

The DLG Sustainability Certificate shows customers of these farms that this is where raw materials for food and energy are produced sustainably!
