ISEAL consultations

Designing or revising a sustainability system starts with consulting the people who it affects. They are the people who will care most about its content and whose buy-in is vital to its success. 

When ISEAL introduces or revises a credibility tool or Code of Good Practice, we engage with stakeholders through a consultation process that includes in-person meetings, facilitated workshops and topic-based webinars.

Our consultations are public. We welcome all feedback, which we use to inform the outcome of the consultation.

Upcoming consultations

We are currently preparing for the revision and integration of the ISEAL Impacts, Standard-Setting and Assurance Codes of Good Practice. We anticipate opening consultation on a first draft of the revised and integrated Code in September 2022. Learn more about the revision and integration process here.
