Whether you are a newer standards initiative, or someone who engages with standards and ecolabels through sourcing, advocacy, consulting, research or governance, becoming an ISEAL subscriber can be of great value to you.

The ISEAL Community is where the sustainability standards movement comes together for innovation and collaboration, and ISEAL subscribers are an important part of this, both as potential future members and supporters of the standards movement. If you are aligned with ISEAL's mission and committed to seeing standards scale up their impact, then we invite you to apply to become a subscriber. 

ISEAL currently has more than a hundred subscribers, including government agencies, NGOs, certification programmes, and sustainability initiatives. Being a subscriber brings these organisations closer to the issues through ISEAL’s technical resources and analysis, and provides unique opportunities for relationship-building, punctuated by the invitation-only ISEAL Community Day, which follows the Global Sustainability Standards Conference.

It's important to keep in mind that being an ISEAL subscriber is not the same as being an ISEAL member. ISEAL membership, open to standard-setting organisations and accreditation bodies, involves compliance with our Codes of Good Practice and offers deeper opportunities for collaboration and shared learning.

For standards and certification initiatives that are still in the early stages and want to ensure that they are developing credible systems, joining as an ISEAL subscriber is a good way to put the foundation in place for future membership.

If you are a researcher, or other interested party and would like an overview of ISEAL's research tools, resources, collaborations and engagements, please visit our research hub.
