A world where social justice and environmental sustainability are the normal conditions of business.
ISEAL’s mission is to strengthen sustainability standards systems for the benefit of people and the environment. We distinguish and promote credible standards and support cooperation among our members and other interested parties to shape an effective standards movement. By building a collaborative movement we aim to achieve a significant and increasing impact on the sustainability of products and services worldwide.
We believe that any one affected by a project or enterprise should be directly involved and have the opportunity to influence it. Our experience tells us that what you achieve by that inclusive process secures greater fairness, greater acceptance and a more permanent foundation.
We strive to be transparent because only by transparency can you build trust, ensure that processes are legitimate, be accountable and encourage access to freely available information.
We aim to be the most credible source of knowledge in our field, to actively acquire, develop and share new ideas, models and experiences. We wish to provide and enable a culture of learning and improvement.
