Summary

Organic is not the only initiative with the aim of improving sustainability in agriculture. There is a wide array of approaches, perspectives, priorities and levels of ambition. Certain initiatives are seen as complimentary to Organic Agriculture and use it as a basis. Others are viewed as followers, competitors or – due to lower sustainability requirements – even as "greenwashers". As not all assessments of standards and impacts recognize a leading position for Organic farming, there is room for improvement.
