Horticulture Storage and Transport Infrastructure
SectorMost major industry classification systems use sources of revenue as their basis for classifying companies into specific sectors, subsectors and industries. In order to group like companies based on their sustainability-related risks and opportunities, SASB created the Sustainable Industry Classification System® (SICS®) and the classification of sectors, subsectors and industries in the SDG Investor Platform is based on SICS.
Business Model Description
Develop and operate storage and transport infrastructure systems to handle perishable horticulture products destined for domestic and export markets through a public-private partnership model, including through packhouses and cold storage facilities for transit products.

Improve handling of perishable products and reduce incidences of post-harvest losses.
