NATRUE factsheets are clear and easy-to-read factual documents on specific topics of interest to the public and PR agencies alike. In contrast to position papers, fact sheets address “static” topics and are not subject to regular updating.

Fact Sheets


NATRUE’s position papers are documents informing about NATRUE’s policy as expressed by its members on a specific topic and at a specific time. Position papers must therefore be agreed upon by our members. NATRUE’s Secretariat drafts the position papers in close collaboration with the NATRUE internal Working Groups and they are regularly updated under different version numbers as issues evolve.

Position Papers
