LEAF Marque Standard Setting

LEAF Marque is an environmental assurance scheme, showing that food has been grown sustainably and with care for the environment. Here we take a look at the process of setting the LEAF Marque Standard.

LEAF Marque standard setting

LEAF Marque is responsible for revising the LEAF Marque Standard at least every 5 years. The LEAF Marque Standard Setting Procedure follows the ISEAL Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards. For more detail on the procedure please read the LEAF Marque Standard Setting Procedure. Stakeholder engagement is a core part of LEAF Marque and we welcome feedback from all stakeholders on all areas including the LEAF Marque Standard and the Standard Setting Procedure at any time by contacting [email protected].

Version 15

Every few years we review the LEAF Marque Standard to ensure it remains relevant.  As industry practices and scientific understanding evolve over time, so our Standard needs to evolve too. Our Standard review is public and consistent with best practice codes and guidelines provided by ISEAL. It engages our members and stakeholders including academics, fellow NGO's, government, industry and members of the public throughout the process. 

Public consultation on the LEAF Marque Standard version 15.0 will open on the 30th November 2018 and runs until the 30th January 2019. Your views matter to us and we would be very grateful to receive your comments.  All the information on the consultation, including the LEAF Marque Standard version 15.0 Draft will be available on the consultation webpage here from the 30th November 2018.
