Input invited on draft credibility principles

19 March 2013

Credibility principles, a set of guidelines which represent the core values upon which effective sustainability standards are built, are increasingly in demand, as what defines good social and environmental practices evolves. ISEAL, an organisation dedicated to establishing credible sustainable standards, is currently holding a consultation process, asking for input on the strength of its draft credibility principles.

The consultation process is in its second round and will run until 30 April 2013. The first round ended on 7 December 2012, and saw constructive feedback gathered from workshops, interviews and electronic commentary. It is aimed that the credibility principles become an international reference that helps governments and businesses understand effective sustainability standards, influencing their sourcing decisions.

The draft credibility principles are available to view online and are also available in Chinese, French, Portuguese and German. Feedback can be given through a variety of channels, including completing an online survey, registering for a webinar, attending a workshop or following the consultation process on twitter. A video has also been produced, outlining the objectives of the principles.
