About This Project

Leonardo Academy is providing process administration to develop a national sustainable agriculture standard through the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). All stakeholders are invited to help shape this standard under the ANSI process. Check the sidebar of the Wiki for a list of Standards Committee members and process observers.

ANSI has established a balanced, transparent process for developing standards that is internationally recognized. Leonardo Academy, an ANSI-accredited standards development organization (SDO), will facilitate the process to ensure that all interested stakeholders have a place at the table.

If you are interested in participating in this standard development process, contact Leonardo Academy (agstandard@leonardoacademy.org).
