EISA (European Initiative for Sustainable Development in Agriculture) is an alliance of national agricultural associations which – on the basis of good agricultural practice – promote the holistic concept of Integrated Farming as guideline for sustainable development of agriculture in the EU.

EISA is an alliance of national organisations of six European countries (France, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, United Kingdom, Austria).

EISA was founded in May 2001 with the common aim of developing and promoting sustainable farming systems, which are an essential element of sustainable development. EISA members are strongly committed to systrems of agriculture that are economocally viable, environmentally responsible and socialy acceptable. They work in partnership with all stakeholders to achieve this goal through the promotion and the further development of Integrated Farming.

EISA is represented in the StAB by Patrick Wrixon, president of EISA.
