FSA Workstreams: Call for nominations

20th October 2021


Agriculture supply chain experts, representatives and stakeholders are invited to apply to be a member of the FSA Assurance and Benchmarking Workstreams.

The function of these permanent workstreams is to support the FSA Steering Committee in the ongoing development of SAI Platform’s Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA) Programme.

Following the launch of FSA version 3.0, the FSA’s Governance Framework was reviewed and recently approved by the SAI Platform Executive Committee. The Governance Framework sets out the policies and structures that enable the continued momentum and integrity of the FSA. Two of these structures are the FSA Assurance Workstream and the Benchmarking Workstream.

SAI Platform anticipates selecting 6-8 individuals to join each of these new workstreams. The FSA Steering Committee has laid down the remit of the Assurance and Benchmarking Workstreams in a clear Terms of Reference (ToR), which also outlines the desired profile of the workstream members.

You can download the ToRs for both workstreams from the following links: Assurance and Benchmarking.

“This is an exciting opportunity to work with a varied group of professionals to ensure that the FSA Programme continues to be state of the art as we progress into the 2020s. I look forward to learning from talented people in our network, and to sharing our body of knowledge with them as well.”

Joe Rushton, FSA Director

The Assurance and Benchmarking Workstreams are open to members and non-members of SAI Platform. They aim to have a good representation of actors throughout the entire value chain. Workstream representatives are expected to spend a few hours per month on FSA workstream related work.
