As a part of our mission to share learning about the effectiveness and impact of multi-stakeholder and other voluntary initiatives, MSI Integrity is committed to actively participating in opportunities for shared learning. This includes providing public comments on specific MSIs undergoing public review, through to attendance and presentations at relevant conferences, workshops, and events. This page offers a sampling of the shared learning activities MSI Integrity has contributed to since 2013.

Please note this list does not include any direct discussions or meetings with stakeholders, MSIs or members.
