We believe in a climate secure world where sustainable growth brings life-changing benefits to communities everywhere. To have any chance in achieving this, investments must go further and deliver more. So that a dollar invested in the planet delivers even more for people. If we reduce greenhouse gases, we must also improve health. When we conserve a forest, we will also create local jobs.
We can do this because of the strength and rigour of our standard. Design is inclusive - projects must engage local communities, empowering them to maintain and extend a project for greater impact. Governance is transparent – from our board of directors right down to our individual projects. And outcomes are long-term, consistent and comparable, providing assurance that everything claimed is real and quantifiable. It’s this trust and confidence in outcomes that paves the way for more good.
