Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains
If we are to meet the challenges of an expanding population, coupled with imminent global warming consequences, the food and farming industries must adapt and innovate. RSK, primarily ADAS, is the UK’s largest independent provider of environmental consultancy, rural development services and policy advice. We offer a range of measurement, analysis, strategy and communication services. Our work spans from company strategy through to on-farm mitigation; we support companies in developing science-based targets and supplier engagement strategies. We can also work with farmers to measure emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.
Unique insights to power innovation
We support our customers to deliver solutions for sustainable agricultural supply chains. Our agricultural background means we are equally at home meeting face-to-face with farmers as we are engaging with senior management in global food and drink businesses. This gives us the unique ability to work across all stages of the supply chain, and with more than 75 years’ experience of informing our strategies, our clients can rest assured that we understand their unique needs and have a bespoke solution to answer their concerns.
Our sustainability services
We offer a range of measurement, analysis, strategy and communication services. Specifically, through ADAS, we offer solutions for sustainable agricultural supply chains.

This can be avoiding mishaps in the value chain and reputational damage or remaining up-to-date on the latest responsible practices. Our multidisciplinary team has a strong practical understanding of agricultural production, combined with expertise in a host of sustainability challenges where we can offer a service. This enables us to bring clarity and expertise that you can trust.
