Within the GRAS tool it is possible to evaluate the available sustainability information in the fields of biodiversity, land use change, carbon stock and social indices into one comprehensive value, the GRAS Index. The basic idea of the GRAS Index is to unite the most important sustainability indicators that are relevant for the assessment of agricultural products and their sustainable origin.
From now the GRAS Index can be additionally adjust according to case and region-specific preferences. The user can change the weighting of each sustainability factor individually and an adjusted GRAS Index can be added to the GRAS Report.
