We are restructuring our standard to better enable us to meet our vision of a climate secure world where sustainable development brings life changing benefits to communities everywhere. We are looking for your thoughts, feedback and suggestions on this new standard, Gold Standard 3.0.

Gold Standard 3.0 will serve as one comprehensive and integrated standard that will enable various outcomes — from reduced greenhouse gas emissions to water benefits to improved health — to be certified through a unique standard and a single certification process. Just as critical, it will evaluate both the positive and sometimes negative impacts of a project, painting a full picture across the activity’s total landscape to maximize net-positive impacts.
