A Greener World
A Greener World (AGW) exists to promote and support real-life farming models to the public and offer practical guidance on achieving truly sustainable livestock farming systems to farmers.

- To educate consumers about the environmental, social and animal outcomes of their food purchasing decisions.
- To establish and promote trusted farm certification programs that help reconnect the consumer and food producer by encouraging and rewarding positive farm management changes.
- To support independent farmers who are committed to sustainable livestock production.
AGW’s portfolio of leading farm certifications includes:
- Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW,
- Certified Grassfed by AGW,
- Certified Non-GMO by AGW and
- Certified Organic by AGW.
Each program is specifically designed to have positive and measurable impacts on the environment, society and animals, and to encourage truly sustainable farming practices. Developed with scientists, veterinarians, experts and farmers from across the globe, AGW farm standards and certification procedures are reassuringly robust and totally transparent, while remaining realistic and achievable for the farmer.
