Summary

The stakeholders in organic agriculture engage themselves to progress on environmental, social and economical aims.

Difference

Nature et Progrès standards require that the stakeholders work to improve their practices on environmental, social and economical topics, but EU Regulation 2092/91 does not include such a preamble with such principles.

Justification

Organic production is not only the respect of technical practices but also a global ecological approach of one's activity, including environnemental, social and economical aims such as preservation of wild and cultivated biodiversity, limitation of energy consumption, use of recyclable materials, promotion of fair trade and relationships, etc.
