Welcome to the LEAF Marque v17.0 Standard Public Consultation Short Survey

LEAF Marque is a leading global environmental 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.

The LEAF Marque Standard v17.0 Draft has been developed with input from multi-stakeholder working groups and focus groups, the LEAF Marque Technical Advisory Committee, multi-stakeholder feedback on the LEAF Marque Standard v16.1 and research conducted by LEAF.

This survey contains targeted questions on the changes made to the standard. We are particularly interested in your views on whether these changes are relevant, feasible, and auditable. We recommend you read the summary of changes before completing this survey.

Public consultation on the LEAF Marque Standard v17.0 Draft will open on the 12 March and runs until the 10 May. Please ensure we receive your comments by the close of consultation on the 10 May. There will be a second round of public consultation from 1 July to 31 July 2024.

Please note the following:
  • The Livestock Management section (called Animal Husbandry in v16.1) is still under revision and will be included in the second round of public consultation in July 2024.
