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.
In 2021, ISEAL worked with seven different sustainability schemes to conduct ten field-based pilot audits in different country-sector combinations around the world. The objectives of these pilot audits were two-fold: to provide participating schemes the opportunity to test the use of the Salary Matrix and accompanying IDH Verification Guidelines with certified entities and to provide IDH learnings and recommendations for these pilots to improve these Roadmap’s tools.

Supporting the best innovations helping sustainability standards be more effective and deliver value
ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice provide a globally recognised framework, defining practices for effective and credible sustainability systems.
ISEAL has been actively supporting policymakers and businesses in understanding how credible sustainability systems can help tackle deforestation. In this statement, ISEAL focuses on the role of certification schemes within the EU Proposal for a Regulation on Deforestation-free Products, and presents its position in three key points: 1. Certification systems cannot and should not replace due diligence responsibilities placed on companies 2. Credible certification systems can provide highly relevant and verified information for companies to conduct due diligence under the regulation 3. The European Commission should set strict credibility criteria for certification based on existing global definitions of good practice.
