In 2013, ISEAL launched the Credibility Principles, which provide an international reference for defining the foundations of credible practices for sustainability standards. Since mid-May 2020, we are leading consultations that will expand the scope of the Credibility Principles beyond sustainability standards to a wider range of systems, such as data-based and landscape-based approaches as well as update the scope of the Credibility Principles to reflect current and future trends affecting standards and similar systems.
How forward-looking is our understanding of credible practice? What approaches will be driving impacts five years from now? In this webinar, experts in remote auditing, data-driven assurance and landscape-level sustainability helped to shed light on the future of sustainability standards and related instruments and helped us understand what this means for the credibility principles.
