Why We Joined
Participation, with actors from (very) varied and complementary backgrounds, from civil society and academic research, to reflections and collective projects to better understand the value chains / chains related to different sectors, their impacts and their possible transformations.

Our societies become ecologically and socially sustainable because citizens, businesses, public authorities … make informed choices that are no longer guided solely by short-term and fragmented economic rationality.
The food sectors represent 3/4 of the research and study activities of BASIC – be it at the international level (coffee, cocoa, tea, bananas, rice, shrimps, tuna, orange juice …) as national and local level in France (fruits, vegetables, legumes, milk, meat, cereals …). Beyond this, BASIC also conducts studies on the textile / clothing sectors, on the mineral and electronic sectors and more generally on large companies (such as those making up the CAC 40 in France).
European NGOs and trade unions, governmental and intergovernmental institutions, local authorities, and more rarely groups of companies.
The Basic produces and circulates in France and abroad, in partnership with civil society organizations and public institutions, knowledge on societal issues and costs associated with business sectors, from the international scale to the French territories one.
Strategies For Change
In partnership with civil society actors and public institutions, BASIC produces and circulates knowledge on societal issues and associated costs, both internationally and in the territories in France: – Through different tools (studies, articles, video supports, conferences, piloting tools …) – To different publics (citizens, actors of the civil society, media, institutions, public authorities, companies …) – And on different scales (sectors of activities, sectors, territories …) … to enable these actors to make informed economic decisions.
