WHAT IS GOLD STANDARD FOR THE GLOBAL GOALS
Gold Standard for the Global Goals is a standard that sets requirements to design projects for maximum positive impact in climate and development — and to measure and report outcomes in the most credible and efficient way.
It customises safeguards, requirements, and methodologies to measure and verify impact on a wide range of activities — from climate protection projects seeking to issue carbon credits to corporate supply chain interventions to national or subnational programmes looking for the most credible claims for their impact reporting.
