This methodological paper from ISEAL shares insights and lessons learned from three ongoing impact evaluations that completed their baseline in 2016 and are due for end line evaluation in 2019.
Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil's latest Public System Report (PSR) for ISEAL's Impacts Code.
This 2014 report, prepared by Centre for Responsible Business with the support of ISEAL, analyses the landscape for the import and use of sustainable palm oil in India, looking at major drivers for and gaps in domestic demand.
A system report for Global Coffee Platform in reference to the ISEAL Assurance Code of Good Practice.
In this report ISEAL offers insights from three baselines of evaluations that it commissioned in 2015 and were published in June 2016
This baseline report presents the initial stage of a research project with the overarching goal to examine the impact on farmer livelihoods and poverty alleviation within Indonesian coffee-growing communities as a result of processes of verification or certification against different sustainability standards. These standards include the Common Code for the Coffee Community (4C) Code of Conduct, the Sustainable Agriculture Network/ Rainforest Alliance (SAN/RA) standard, and Utz Certification.
A Report produced for the ISEAL Alliance Innovations Fund project “Integrating new data to improve risk assessments and detection of forced labour vulnerability in agricultural supply chains”.
Moving towards an outcome-based standard creates the opportunity for LEAF to communicate more closely on the impacts of implementing the LEAF Marque Standard, measuring outcomes directly rather than proxying them with practices.

A system report for the Better Cotton Initiative in reference to the ISEAL Assurance Code of Good Practice.
Better Cotton Initiative's latest Public System Report (PSR) for ISEAL's Impacts Code.
Learn how a partnership between the government of the world’s largest coffee producing state – Minas Gerais – and the world’s largest voluntary standard for coffee, UTZ Certified, enables producers access to high-value markets while scaling-up more sustainable production practices.
In Mozambique, the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) has assisted the country’s policy-makers in adjusting its rules for cotton concessions to achieve higher yields while improving on sustainability aspects.
