ISEAL has developed a good practice guide to help ensure that sustainability claims made by jurisdictions, landscape initiatives, and the companies that source from or support them, are credible. The guidance covers the structural and performance claims a jurisdictional entity may wish to make, along with the supporting action claims of other related stakeholders.
Public and private sector stakeholders are increasingly looking to voluntary standards as one of the key tools to deliver their sustainability goals. While voluntary standards are clearly demonstrating their contribution to livelihoods, decent work and preservation of the environment, there is renewed focus on the extent to which these tools can protect and promote core human rights in sectors where they operate.
Sustainability standards from the mining, minerals and metals (MMM) sector are working together to increase the effectiveness, efficiency and impact of their systems, supported through the ISEAL Innovations Fund.
ISEAL is pleased to announce that the Copper Mark has been approved as an ISEAL Community Member. We are excited to be working with an initiative that broadens our understanding of the mining and minerals sector and look forward to Copper Mark’s participation in the ISEAL community.
