International Executive Programme on Sustainable Sourcing & Trade

The International Executive Programme (IEP) on Sustainable Sourcing & Trade is organised by the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership in partnership with SAI Platform. The programme is built in collaboration with a network of leading academic institutions in the field of sustainable agriculture and global value chains.

Building on last year’s successful delivery of the IEP which brought together 86 professionals from around the world, tackling different aspects of sustainability, we continue to offer an engaging programme for professionals across the food and drink industry.

The key topics of the IEP 2022 taking place between 3 May and 28 June include:

Megatrends impacting supply chains globally
Nature positive: towards carbon neutral and climate resilient agri food systems
Regenerative Agriculture: from theory to practice: learning from the field
Tools & solutions to improve the sustainable management of supply chains
Sustainability leadership as a key skill set to manage sustainable development.

An innovative component has been added to this year’s edition of the Executive Programme: a field trip to Geneva to experience Regenerative Agriculture in practice and learn directly from its practitioners. The field trip will include an in-person seminar on Regenerative Agriculture, followed by a visit to two farms: one near Lullier and AgriGenève. Farmers and operators will offer participants a hands-on approach to regenerative agriculture practices.
