Exploring the Tools that Will Deliver Lasting Change: Labels, Verification, Organic Certification: Is There a Best Option?

What does it take to deliver meaningful impact on our food production systems? Why is certification important and what other tools are there that will help facilitate better and best practice? We consider a range of approaches that aim to deliver lasting, positive change.

We know that agricultural practices are pivotal when it comes to mitigating the climate, nature and health crises we face, but debate rages about which ones are having meaningful impact. So how can we support farmers to develop farming systems that are a force for good, for all?

Amidst the explosion in interest in how farmers can achieve environmental best practice without negatively impacting food production, an increasing number of schemes, labels and tools for measuring performance and recognising best practice are starting to emerge.

This session provides information to help navigate the options and understand the key features that will be most helpful in delivering meaningful outcomes while at the same time meeting customers’ expectations. Our speakers cover a range of perspectives, from market-led solutions such as certification, to standalone metrics-based tools that measure performance and progress.

At a time when farmers and growers will need to be improving and monitoring their environmental performance, tools to help navigate this landscape are more important than ever.
