Credible sustainability standards have created tried and tested structures for operationalising sustainability across various regions, sectors and supply chains. How can governments and businesses capitalise on their success to proactively drive sustainability? Join ISEAL, ISEAL members, and other benchmarking experts as we discuss how rigorous, transparent and consistent benchmarking can help to operationalise due diligence requirements and make sustainability tools more accessible. Our experienced panellists discussed the aims behind the development of these benchmarking frameworks, how to ensure they encourage adoption of credible standards among governments and businesses, and possible paths forward – as well as referencing available tools and guidance.
