Driving Change for Greater Impact

The 2018 Global Sustainability Standards Conference (GSSC) will bring together 250 senior figures to explore the theme of ‘driving change for greater impact’ with a deep look into how sustainability standards can work best for the people, places, and issues that matter most.

During last year’s conference, which focused a lot on how standards can prove their impact, the community expressed the need to focus more on producers and small businesses globally. Nyagoy Nyong’o from Fairtrade Africa, e.g., pointed out that standards have to foster the inclusion of the weakest players in the supply chain and also should avoid getting stuck in a western-centric paradigma.

ISEAL has taken this to heart and dedicated the 2018 GSSC to amplifying producer and SME voices. In Saõ Paolo, ISEAL will delve into the results of its recent research on the needs of small producers and enterprises as well as in-depth case studies to discover how standards systems and collaborations can be strengthened to ensure that they work for those at the start of the supply chain.

Community Day: Using Data to Create Value and Improve Effectiveness

The third conference day, May 24, is exclusive to the ISEAL Community and brings together members and subscribers to discuss what it means for sustainability standards to deliver greater impact and be more responsive and agile based on outcome-based approaches. Measuring the results is crucial to understanding what is working and what is not.

Harnessing data for better decision-making is needed to increase effectiveness, collaboration, and information-sharing. If you would like to learn more about the power of software tools in data analytics and practical ways you can use them, we highly recommend that you attend the hands-on workshop. Fast track your monitoring and evaluation using data’ (May 24, 2 pm) co-hosted by Rainforest Alliance, ISEAL Alliance, and Jochen Kleboth, who is Head of Data and Business Analytics at Intact and Wageningen University and the mastermind behind Intact Data and Business Analytics.
