THE BASICS

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.

WHY GOLD STANDARD PROJECTS?

Measure, reduce, offset.
By being conscious of the choices you make and their effects on the environment, you can reduce your own carbon footprint and offset your unavoidable emissions to support the transition to a low-carbon sustainable future. 

SECTOR SPECIFIC

RENEWABLE ENERGY LABELS

As part of its new standard Gold Standard for the Global Goals, Gold Standard is launching a new quality label for renewable energy market instruments. This Gold Standard Renewable Energy Label will provide the assurance that the renewable energy projects are developed to the highest quality in terms of environmental integrity, SDG Contributions, stakeholder inclusivity, safeguards, and monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV).
