Welcome to the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops

The Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC) is a multi-stakeholder initiative dedicated to developing tools for measuring sustainable performance across the specialty crops supply chain. SISC offers a suite of outcomes-focused metrics enabling operators to benchmark, compare, and communicate their own performance.

Get Involved

Measure to Manage: Use the Metrics!
SISC offers seven Working Metrics – plus lots of supporting materials:

Join the Coordinating Council

Growers, grower groups, brands, buyers, processors and environmental NGO’s are welcome to join the SISC Coordinating Council (CC).  The CC is the governing body of SISC, and is made up of members from across the specialty crop and food industry.  For more information on current members of the CC see our Current Participants page. For more information on joining the CC, please contact us.

Become an Affiliate member

SISC welcomes Ag software companies, Ag input companies and Ag tech companies to become affiliate members, and implement the SISC metrics in their tools and services.  Affiliate members engage in projects using the SISC metrics with grower groups, brands, and SISC staff. Affiliate members are non-voting members of SISC, and do not participate in the governance of SISC or SISC metrics.  For more information see our Affiliate Membership page.
