Measuring our impact: proving and improving

LEAF Marque certification helps farm businesses become more sustainable. It is an important driver for change. Gaining insight into the impact LEAF Marque certification is having on delivering more sustainable farming is critical for the continuous improvement of our standards.  

So we can assess the effectiveness of our work and be certain that it is advancing environmental change, we commission independent research studies to evaluate our impact.   The findings of these studies provide vital insights which we use to revise and adapt the LEAF Marque assurance system.  This leads
to better results of our work, for the benefit of all LEAF Marque
certified businesses.
