The study compares geographic concentrations of certified farms to three primary concerns of the most common voluntary third-party certifications: biodiversity, deforestation and poverty, concluding that “while certification appeared to coincide with areas important for biodiversity, it showed less overlap with areas of greatest poverty. These results suggest either a mismatch between the objectives of sustainability standards studied here and their potential to achieve them, or a greater emphasis on environmental than social sustainability.” The study notes that “spatial bias” in certifications is not intentional, but more reasonably a result of market development throughout the various global agricultural sectors. “To the extent that spatial targeting of certification can be said to have occurred to date, it has largely been a by-product of the management of specific supply chains,” the group wrote.
