ISEAL is very excited to announce that the ProTerra Foundation is joining ISEAL as a Community Member. We are pleased to welcome a standards system that supports stakeholders to continuously enhance day-to-day sustainability practice at all levels of the feed and food production system.
ISEAL members are sustainability systems and accreditation bodies dedicated to delivering benefits for people and planet. They are committed to continually improving their systems and impacts through learning and innovation; collaborating with stakeholders and peers; and are transparent and truthful about how their systems work and how they measure their impacts.
In becoming an ISEAL Community Member, ProTerra joins a growing number of well-respected sustainability systems that are driving positive social and environmental change across multiple sectors. ProTerra will be working alongside these mission-driven sustainability organisations to continuously improve the effectiveness of their systems and demonstrate impact.
Further to the recommendation from the ISEAL Membership Committee and ISEAL Board approval, our Executive Director, Karin Kreider, commented, “I am delighted to welcome ProTerra as an ISEAL Community Member. Their standards system focusses on improving sustainability results in the food and feed supply-chain. This exciting step reflects their commitment to ongoing improvement and deepening their credible practices. I look forward to ProTerra introducing a fresh perspective to the ISEAL community.”
Emese van Maanen, ProTerra Managing Director added, “We are proud to become a member of ISEAL´s Community. As an ISEAL Community Member, we will be working to improve our systems by taking part in ISEAL’s learning, collaboration, and innovation activities. As well as aligning with ISEAL’s best practices and guidance, we are committed to continuously develop, build trust and demonstrate transparency.”
We encourage any organisation developing or operating a sustainability system with a multi-stakeholder approach and a commitment to credible practices to consider joining ISEAL.
