How do Gold Standard projects help achieve the SDGs?

Modified on Tue, 18 Aug 2020 at 11:44 AM

Our standard, Gold Standard for the Global Goals, is designed so that each project takes climate action in tandem with sustainable development. As a part of our certification process, our project developers are required to adhere to our ‘do no harm’ principle, consult with local stakeholders, and ensure that their projects not only help protect the climate by contributing to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13, Climate Action, but also benefit local communities by contributing to two additional SDGs. These safeguards and requirements ensure that the project impacts are real, measurable, and verified by an independent third party. Find out more about Gold Standard for the Global Goals>>
