Gold Standard is currently developing Gold Standard for the Global Goals: a new standard that allows for the consolidation of existing Gold Standard scopes and for the quantification and verification of multiple impacts based on the Sustainable Development Goals.
To enable us to meet our vision of a climate secure world where sustainable development brings life-changing benefits to communities everywhere, we have developed Gold Standard for the Global Goals to provide the tools and guidance needed to deliver results on the ground in the most effective and equitable manner. In turn, certification of SDG impacts provides the confidence that results are not only measured and verified—but translate to real impact in social value.

For this consultation, we have included the Claims Guidance for Gold Standard for the Global Goals. These guidelines are intended for use by Gold Standard project developers, partners, and funder of Gold Standard projects for the certified impacts these projects deliver under Gold Standard for the Global Goals. We are seeking your thoughts, feedback, and suggestions on all aspects of our Claims Guidance.
