We are mission-driven to mainstream
credible impact certification

SustainCERT is the official certification body for Gold Standard for the Global Goals – a next-generation standard to quantify, certify and maximise impact toward ‘climate security and sustainable development for all.’ We believe this is only possible if technology solutions can help amplify and simplify how impact assessment has been done in the past.

Gold Standard’s rigour with SustainCERT’s agility helps businesses and investors more efficiently and credibly quantify and report on the social and environmental impacts yielded from a wide range of sustainability interventions that are possible under Gold Standard for the Global Goals.



We measure
and assure impact –

You’re interested in making a positive impact. But exactly what value has your sustainability effort delivered?

SustainCERT’s flexible, tech-driven solutions create customised certification pathways through Gold Standard for the Global Goals for a wide range of sustainability interventions. Businesses and investors can easily embed impact assessment and assurance into their initiatives, whether a supply chain improvement, a sustainable product, or a large scale investment. This helps more accurately and efficiently quantify and report on the social and environmental impacts for higher credibility and recognition.



Many systems today require significant efforts and resources for those seeking certification. Self-navigation through complex standards or costly consulting support, hard copies of documents, manual data monitoring and input for reporting.

SustainCERT aims to be fully digitised by 2020. That means that users will have a centralised portal and dashboard showing their status in the certification process, automated data monitoring and tracking, where possible
