Statement Of Support

Subway aims to source from suppliers that strive to:

– Use sustainable forest management practices in forests they own, lease, or manage to provide fiber, paper, timber, and other forest-based products.
– Leverage principles and implement sustainable agriculture practices that enable farmers to increase production on currently farmed land and minimize impacts on the surrounding area.
– Preserve biodiversity and cultural values and optimize the social, environmental, and economic benefits of managed forests.
– Ensure that this policy is implemented in such a way that supports the inclusion of smallholders in their supply chains.
