Beyond Certification: Transforming business resilience through sustainability. The impacts, benefits and opportunities.

This year’s LEAF Marque Summit brings together farmers, industry experts and policy makers to explore some of the pressing questions around the challenges, benefits and impacts of LEAF Marque certification. We will explore the opportunities it brings to drive long-term positive impact beyond certification in the productivity and health of farming businesses across the globe.

As food production systems transform to adapt to changing conditions, what is the role of food assurance systems in accelerating change? How can they support the delivery of important global targets such as the United Nations SDG’s? Specifically, how is LEAF Marque certification making a difference.   These are just some of the questions we will be debating at this year’s LEAF Marque Summit.  Speakers include:Caroline Drummond, LEAF Chief Executive; Claudine Blamey, Group Head of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd; Leah Mathias-Collins, Environment Manager, Vitacress; Mark Knight, Technical Crops Manager, Tangmere Airfield Nurseries and Clare Blackledge, Programme Manager, Market-led Approaches, Environment Agency.  

The LEAF Marque Summit is FREE to attend and takes place on Thursday 21st March at Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd, London.
