Bonn, Germany-based IFOAM, with 848 affiliates in 121 countries, said Organic 3.0 takes into account the role agriculture plays in the global issues of hunger, inequity, energy consumption, pollution, climate change, loss of biodiversity and depletion of natural resources.
"Organic 3.0 is about bringing organic out of its current niche into the mainstream and positioning organic systems as part of the multiple solutions needed to solve the tremendous challenges faced by our planet and our species," IFOAM said in a statement.
The group released the final version of its Organic 3.0 document in November 2016.
