A Question of Trust

This year our theme was trust, which goes hand-in-hand with what it means to be a credible sustainability standard. Through keynote addresses, panel discussions and breakout sessions, the conference explored the many dimensions of trust that are essential to scaling up the certification movement: trust that standards systems are evaluating their impacts and responding to results; trust that claims and labels are accurate; trust from producers that certification is valuable; trust from busineses and the finance sector that standards are the right tool to achieve their objectives; trust that standards can address challenging global issues like living wage; and trust that standards are evolving to meet expectations and achieve their sustainability missions.
