The increasing visibility of the effects of unsustainable sourcing and production is raising the profile of this particular green issue. Producers are working towards completely sustainable production, meaning that losses of biodiversity are countered, in addition to using alternative ingredients and beginning the process of credible consumer education.

Over the last 40 years, a 52% decline in biodiversity has been recorded. A growing population and the resultant ecological demands mean that the FMCG industry is a key party in this loss. Unsustainable harvesting and production places unmanageable pressure on natural resources.
Despite two thirds of consumers globally being concerned about species and habitat loss, only 31% look for on-pack ethical or sustainability logos all or most of the time. This "ideal-reality" gap shows the disparity between consumer concerns and either understanding of what can be done or willingness to do something about it.
