Stewardship in plant biotech

Excellence through stewardship / ETS
At 3Bio, we recognize stewardship not merely as an obligation but as a dedicated commitment to preserving the environment, human well-being, and sustainable agriculture. Stewardship initiatives, such as Excellence Through Stewardship (ETS), play a pivotal role in promoting industry-leading practices within the agricultural biotechnology sector. By embracing stewardship initiatives, companies can mitigate risks throughout the biotech product life cycle, prevent trade disruptions, and shield themselves from unforeseen liabilities.


We firmly believe in the potential for every organization to derive value from a stewardship approach, provided it is fully empowered and customized to their unique needs. We invite you to explore tailored solutions with us, designed to align with your organization's goals and challenges. Alternatively, if you prefer a rapid assessment of your current practices, we are pleased to offer our assistance in identifying areas for improvement. Let us help you optimize your stewardship strategy for maximum effectiveness and impact.

Design & Implement

Feeling unsure about where to begin? Overwhelmed by the intricacies of establishing a stewardship program? Allow us to guide you through the process, from identifying essential elements to seamlessly navigating implementation. We recognize that resources vary across organizations and that a one-size-fits-all approach simply doesn't suffice. Count on our expertise to help you develop a sustainable and tailored effort that supports your unique needs and objectives. Let's embark together on this journey towards effective stewardship practices.

ETS Third-Party Audit

Member organizations of ETS are granted a three-year timeframe to proficiently undergo an "ETS Global Stewardship Audit," validating the implementation of stewardship programs and quality management systems. These audits are performed by independent auditors. Patrick Rüdelsheim and Nicolas De Schrijver serve as Qualified Auditors for all ETS components, leveraging their insights in the ETS program and building on over 25 years of experience in the agricultural biotechnology sector.
