Impacts and benefits

ISEAL’s main aim is to achieve positive impacts for people and the environment. Credible standards are a proven tool for making production and trade more sustainable, but it’s an ongoing process that requires constant attention.

We’re committed to understanding more about the long-term outcomes of certification, improving standards in areas where they could perform better, and demonstrating their impact to partners and stakeholders across all sectors.

To contribute to this aim, our members commit to implementing the ISEAL Impacts Code. This offers a results-oriented monitoring and evaluation framework to systematically track progress and drive improvement, and commits members to publicly report the results of their findings.
