"Our role is to make visible what's not, to create trust where there is doubt, to bring simplicity when complexity is everywhere."

SustainCERT manifesto

OUR STORY

From vision to impact

SustainCERT is a spin off from the Gold Standard Foundation and was created in 2018 with one ambition: to mainstream credible climate and SDG impact accounting and certification.

Mainstreaming best practice impact certification is essential to accelerate progress towards our collective climate and sustainability goals. It is no longer sufficient to claim to do good. SustainCERT’s role is to create trust that real and meaningful progress is achieved towards the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement.

WHAT WE DO

Create a race to the top to mainstream best practice

Traditional impact accounting and certification solutions are complex, require significant resources and often fail to bring value to their users. At SustainCERT, we leverage technology, user-centricity and innovation to transform the way impact assessment is done. Our work is designed to break barriers to mass adoption and make best practice impact accounting and certification accessible, affordable, desirable.

Accessible

We focus on product innovation and capacity building to increase understanding of certification requirements and bring best practice solutions to as many users, in as many markets as possible. 

Affordable

We leverage technology and the power of digitization to save time, reduce complexity and lower the costs of certification without sacrificing accuracy or rigour.

Desirable

We work with benchmark standards and internationally recognized frameworks to provide maximum credibility and increase positive return on investment for businesses and investors.

Our team

We are a team of determined people who believe our work can change the world. Think people with big ideas, tireless optimism and top-notch expertise. Our people work from across the globe – Switzerland, USA, India, Netherlands, China, etc. – speak different languages and all contribute to making SustainCERT special.
