A questionable organisation if ever there was one.
That may be true. The problem is that it only takes a few rotten
apples in the barrel. The whole spectrum of this is not interesting
enough to most people to make them feel inclined to investigate the
detail, and sort the wheat from the chaff. The remainder are
influenced by sensationalism and open to exploitation by charlatans
whether it be for their money or their hearts and minds.
I am sure, but how many people have time or inclination to waste on
this? I haven't looked at the market reports lately but would
suspect that this would come a distant third after price and service.

I recall that Jonathan Porrit came under fire from Kevin Cahill who wrote
Who Owns Britain. They said that the UK is short of agricultural land. We
"pay" farmers "not" to grow crops.
Like many of these green organisations, they have been highjacked by large
land owners who have a different agenda to saving the planet. Like keeping
people out of the countryside and retaining their lucrative acres.
