ISEAL is the backbone organisation for sustainability standards, recognised for facilitating global consensus on good practices for the innovative development and implementation of voluntary (private) sustainability standards. Joshua leads ISEAL’s work on positioning credible sustainability standards as enablers of sustainable trade. He supports ISEAL work to develop government case studies on the use of sustainability standards, with the goal of building partnerships and guidance for policy makers to use private standards in ways that minimise barriers to trade and deepen positive impacts. As part of this, he is also researching producer needs to ensure greater accessibility of sustainability standards. Over the last 15 years, Joshua has worked with GIZ, ITC, UNCTAD, UNEP, and WWF. Since 2010, Joshua has continually advised ISEAL’s growth in China. He joined ISEAL full time in 2015. He studied history at the University of Michigan and international relations at the University of California San Diego.
