1. Introduction

LEAF Marque is a leading global assurance system recognising more sustainably farmed products. The LEAF Marque Standard is based on LEAF’s Integrated Farm Management (IFM) principles, and all LEAF Marque certified businesses are independently inspected.

In 2019, a review of the LEAF Marque Standard v15.0 identified topics that could be developed to improve relevance or contribution to the Intended Impacts of LEAF Marque.  The LEAF Marque Standard v16.0 Draft has been informed by the research on each of these topics, which included stakeholder interviews, desk-based study, and trial audits.

This survey has targeted questions on these topics. We are particularly interested in your views on whether these changes are relevant, feasible, and auditable. We recommended you read the summary of changes (detailed, or short) before completing this survey.
