WEBINAR: Making sense of Net Zero and Climate Positive

Companies make net-zero, climate neutral, and climate positive claims, but how credible are they? Are they based on science?

Gold Standard joins this South Pole webinar to discuss how to develop a framework that defines what it is to be "net zero" or "climate positive", anchored in the Science-Based Targets Initiative, the GHG Protocol, and market standards.

Net-Zero Value Chains

Companies that wish to be aligned with the Paris Agreement are targeting net-zero emissions. Yet for many companies the bulk of their carbon footprint lies in their value chains. In this workshop, Gold Standard with SustainCERT and corporate partners provide guidance to reduce Scope 3 emissions, recognised by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and Science Based Targets.

Offsetting: Success in projects, failure of communication

Sarah Leugers, Director of Marketing and Communications

This spring, I finally witnessed in person the spirit of Gold Standard projects.  And at the same time I realised why more companies aren’t supporting them today. The project activities are truly inspirational. Improved cookstoves are helping to drive an urgently needed transition to a low-carbon future.


The role of voluntary carbon offsetting in a post-Paris world

A couple of months ago, the adoption of the Paris Climate Agreement was in the headlines of every major news outlet around the world. The Paris Agreement represents a major landmark, not only because of its significance as the first truly global climate treaty, but also because of the unprecedented mobilization of state and non-state actors in creating the right conditions to facilitate the adoption of a text that was agreed to by over 190 countries.
This unprecedented mobilization is tangible at every level.

Gold Standard and Science Based Targets define critical role for carbon credits

Gold Standard has entered into a collaboration with the Science Based Targets Initiative to explore the role of businesses in financing additional emissions reductions outside of their own operations or supply chain. This provides further means for the private sector to accelerate global decarbonisation.
