Network Platform

The Gold Standard Network Platform aims to mobilize partnerships and facilitate structured programmes to create concrete outcomes toward climate security and sustainable development. Our current active programmes include:

  • >>Future Proofing the Voluntary Carbon Market
    With support from the German Government, Gold Standard is working with project developers to identify which projects are at risk of double counting post 2020, developing consensus-based solutions to overcome this risk, including new claims for carbon neutrality. This programme is freely accessible for Gold Standard Network Platform participants.
  • >>Value Chain Interventions
    With support from Climate KIC, Gold Standard and strategic partners WWF, WRI, CDP, Danone, Mars and Livelihoods Fund, are proposing new guidance that will allow companies to credibly account for emission reductions from value chain projects and programmes. We are calling on companies with significant scope 3 emissions (focused on agriculture-based value chains) to join this initiative to test and apply the Guidance.
  • >>SDG Impact Tool development
    As part of our collaboration with the UNFCCC Secretariat, we will develop quantification and reporting tools tailored for different climate actions, with specific indicators linked to the SDGs, relevant and applicable by project type and sector. The goal is to allow projects and their funders to transparently and credibly communicate about the benefits those actions bring to the global community.

Join the platform and convene with corporate leaders and stakeholders to pioneer innovative solutions that help meet the ambition of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals.
