CEDESA committed to the planet - GLOBALGAP.
In September 2015, the world leaders of the UN adopted the Sustainable Development Goals for the nations, we soon learned that CEDESA Digital had to take an active part in achieving that goal. The idea of these 17 objectives was clear: "eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all", through a series of milestones that must be achieved in the next 15 years. A project that fascinated us from the beginning, since it involved governments, the private sector, civil society and ordinary people. We believed in it since its inception, determined that, if the United Nations Organization wanted to improve the world, CEDESA had to do its bit.
To support the achievement of these objectives, GLOBALGAP was born, as the body in charge of managing a certification that guarantees, among other things, good agricultural practices. They bet on the application of new computer technologies that automate the process of collecting, processing and reporting information on farms and cultivatable land, in order to ensure optimum levels of compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals. Immediately we knew that, in parallel to everything that each of us could do on a personal level, CEDESA, as a company, had to demonstrate its commitment to the fulfillment of those objectives. Enthusiastic, we got down to work with the creation of our horticultural and forest management software: Agrocontrol.
We knew right away that our clients would understand the importance of obtaining the GLOBALGAP CERTIFICATE for their companies, so we consider it essential,when we developing our Agrocontrol software, that it comply with all the requirements demanded by that body. We had to ensure that our program opened the doors to our clients to obtain certification, aware that this would encourage producers to adopt safe and sustainable production practices, and thus measure their contribution towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
This is how we develop the Agrocontrol, software, with the GLOBALGAP clauses always present on the work table, anticipating what the process that our clients should follow when they want to obtain certification would be. We put it to test, using the checklist provided by Licensed Farm Assurer , consultants, and the result showed that our software is in perfect synch with UN ideas; Agrocontrol fully meets the stipulated requirements for sustainable development.
Thus, with our program installed in your company, you will only have to call a GGN number, arrange a meeting with an approved GLOBALGAP certification body, and an inspector will perform an on-site inspection, which will undoubtedly lead to obtaining of a GLOBALGAP Certificate for Integrated Farm Assurance.
We are very proud to have reached this milestone, and to be one of the few companies in the sector that have joined this beautiful project. We are delighted with the possibility of being able to offer this option to our clients, and we know that together we can boast of having managed to make the world a much better place.
