Donate to Gold Standard

Gold Standard is a small Swiss-based NGO with a big impact. Established in 2003, Gold Standard projects have already prevented more than 300 million tonnes of CO2 from entering our atmosphere.

But we must do more.

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our planet. To protect our planet and its people from catastrophic effects, we need to keep global warming well below 2°C. We can only meet this goal if everybody – governments, businesses, the public sector and individuals – commits to ambitious action.

Please support us in our mission to catalyse more ambitious climate action, and to ensure that climate initiatives around the world benefit the climate and its people as much as possible, by donating to Gold Standard.

Money donated through this page is used to help fund our initiatives and innovations and the ongoing improvements to our Standard, Gold Standard for the Global Goals. If you wanted to support climate projects directly, please visit our Project Marketplace, to buy our high integrity certified carbon credits.
