Are you involved in the organic food sector and would like hands-on training in how to make your operations more sustainable?
The Sustainable Food Trade Association’s reporting metrics can be traced back to The Natural Step (TNS). The TNS framework is a tool that can be used to plan and integrate sustainability into complex, cross-functional food and agricultural systems.
The workshop will focus on the core concepts of TNS framework, including:
- Systems Thinking
- The Funnel Metaphor
- “Backcasting” from Principles
- 4 System Conditions for Sustainability
- ABCD Process
After attending this meeting, participants will understand how to apply TNS to their sustainability program, inform the development and strategic planning of sustainability in their organizations, and be able to share this useful and popular framework with their peers.
