Gold Standard uses the power of financial markets to deliver support to the most vulnerable. We set standards and design methodologies, to credibly measure the impact of projects aimed at combating climate change and delivering sustainable development. Our focus is on impact rather than a specific mechanism, meaning our standard can support the issuance of carbon credits and other financial tools.

We manage the world’s leading carbon and sustainable development standard, enabling the accurate measurement of the impact, both for carbon credits and other financial tools. Our vision is climate security and sustainable development for all.

Gold Standard is a not-for-profit headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, focused on catalysing more ambitious climate action to achieve the global goals through robust standards and verified impacts.

Gold Standard works with organisations from across the private sector and with other NGO’s to help us to achieve greater impact.

Addressing climate change and sustainable development requires technical leadership, diversity and a global mindset. Our Secretariat is composed of experts stationed all around the world. Please feel free to connect with our team.
