IADSA Sustainability Survey launched

Editor's Note

AHPA members are encouraged to complete a sustainability survey recently launched by the International Alliance of Dietary/Food Supplement Associations (IADSA). The more companies that complete the survey, the more accurate and useful the results will be. Information about the survey and a link to participate is included in the abridged IADSA announcement below. As a member of IADSA, AHPA distributes relevant news on behalf of the organization to AHPA members.

We are pleased to inform you that we have now launched the IADSA global survey on environmental sustainability which is available at this link:

Following the publication of the IADSA Guiding Principles on Sustainability, there was a reflection on how best to support the industry, given the increasing development of regulatory and policy measures on sustainability.

The survey has therefore been launched to:

  • Better understand where the sector stands.
  • Determine the needs of the supplement sector.
  • Identify areas where flexibility for our sector may be required.

The key findings of the survey will be addressed during the IADSA Annual Week in Copenhagen in June.

How long will it take to complete the survey?

It should take 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey is open until the end of February. In addition to English, translation has been provided in Korean, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish thanks to the help of our members.

Who has developed the survey?

The survey has been built with the global consumer research company IPSOS, based on input from the IADSA Task Force.

Who should complete the survey?

All companies involved in the sector can participate, including producers of finished products and ingredients, contract manufacturers, distributors, retailers, suppliers of services etc.


All the information provided by respondents will be treated by IPSOS in the strictest confidence and used for research purposes only. It will not be possible for IADSA and our members to identify any particular individuals or companies in the results.

Many thanks in advance for your help. If you have any questions, please email us at
