LEAF is inviting its members, farmers, growers, academics, fellow NGOs, members of the public and other stakeholders to provide their views on the relevance, feasibility, and auditability of the proposed changes to the LEAF Marque Standard (v16.0 Draft).

The consultation period opens on November 17 and runs until January 17, 2022.

The survey (condensed and detail) can be completed online, and feedback can also be submitted by email, phone or in writing.

Lucy Redmore, assurance manager at LEAF said:

We are committed to listening, adapting and continually improving; obtaining stakeholder feedback is an essential part of revising our LEAF Marque Standard.

"We welcome and value the opinions of our members, farmers, growers, academics, fellow NGO’s, members of the public and other stakeholders.

"This consultation provides a great opportunity to help shape the future direction of the LEAF Marque Standard v16.0, as well as influence how the agricultural sector delivers more sustainable, regenerative, nature-based global farming and food systems.

We encourage everyone to get involved and help us develop and evolve the next version of the LEAF Marque Standard.

"The feedback we receive is vital in ensuring LEAF Marque certification continues to act as a powerful catalyst for mobilising advances in more climate positive farming across the globe.”
