Sustainability Steering Group

The Sustainability Steering Group has been created to support IFST in translating the issues, sharing updates on developments and providing outputs relating to sustainability. They propose relevant policy, positions & recommendations, signpost to credible resources created by others, and where relevant recommend the development of additional complimentary IFST resources to raise awareness, facilitate understanding and equip members and the wider food sector to integrate and implement sustainability measures across the entire food lifecycle, including risk management, linking outputs to UN SDG.

Events & Webinars

Each working group is run by a small committee of volunteer members, who meet both face-to-face and virtually. As part of the committee, members are actively involved in organising and attending meetings in relation to setting up activities, events and webinars across the year. Open our Events page to attend our upcoming events or access the Webinar Hub to watch previous webinar recordings.

IFST Impact Award

We value the important contribution that volunteers bring to the work and life of the Institute. Without the contribution of the volunteers who serve on committees, branches and special interest groups, we would find it difficult to achieve the strategic priorities set out by the Board of Trustees. The Impact Award is an opportunity for volunteers to showcase an innovative activity that has been undertaken that meets the set criteria.
