Valuing low carbon commodities

This guidance informs ISEAL members and their stakeholders on how to build systems to quantify, attribute and allocate GHG emission data  to certified commodities processes – both energy and land use – in line with the GHG Protocol. Adoption of this approach will allow corporate purchasers to count their purchase of lower-carbon goods toward their climate commitments, including Science Based Targets. In turn, producers can seek potential premiums and preferential procurement and mitigate the risk of losing demand due to pressure for climate performance data.


Project Developer Roundtables

The roundtables will be chaired by Margaret Kim, Chief Executive Office of the Gold Standard, and supported by members of the Secretariat.
