Driving change for greater impact

The Global Sustainability Standards Conference is the leading annual global event for those who support the uptake of credible sustainability standards and certification.

Making standards work for the people, places and issues that matter

Bringing together 250 senior figures, the conference will explore the theme of ‘driving change for greater impact’ with a deep look into how we can make standards work best for the people, places and issues that matter most.

The conference will put producers and small businesses at the centre of the discussion as we examine topics including deforestation, living income, forced labour and others. We will explore how to address these issues through regional sourcing, access to finance, systems and technology innovations, and collaboration.

Amplifying producer and small business voices

By amplifying producer and SME voices, delving into the results of ISEAL’s recent research on the needs of small producers and enterprises, and using in-depth case studies, we’ll discover how we can strengthen standards systems and collaborations to ensure that they work for those at the start of the supply chain.


Information about ticket prices can be found on the ISEAL Alliance website.

ISEAL is the global association for sustainability standards, whose mission is to strengthen sustainability standards systems for the benefit of people and the environment. Our members include some of the world’s most established and influential sustainability standards including Fairtrade International, Forest Stewardship Council, Rainforest Alliance and Marine Stewardship Council and many others. We are the backbone of the standards and certification movement, bringing together organisations working at the forefront of global supply chains to make production more sustainable through certitification and labelling. We define credible practices for standards systems that lead to greater social and environmental impact. At the heart of our work is a set of ten Credibility Principles that underpin everything we do.
