How to become an ISEAL member - the pathway in practice
Joining ISEAL’s learning community helps sustainability systems become more effective at achieving positive impacts.
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.
The ISEAL Credibility Principles represent the core values on which effective sustainability systems are built.
Sustainability systems are market-based tools designed to address the most pressing social and environmental challenges of our time. They give people power to make an impact.
