LEAF Marque stands for more environmental sustainability and is held globally by farm businesses which meet our rigorous standards of sustainable farming practice. The independently verified, robust LEAF Marque Standard is underpinned by the sustainable farming principles of Integrated Farm Management (IFM) which support the delivery of Climate Positive action, build resilience and support the health, diversity and enrichment of our food, farms, the environment and society. LEAF Marque is run by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) which works with farmers, the food industry, scientists and consumers, to inspire and enable sustainable farming that is prosperous, enriches the environment and engages local communities
