"Our role is to make visible what's not, to create trust where there is doubt, to bring simplicity when complexity is everywhere."

SustainCERT manifesto


From vision to impact

SustainCERT was founded as an independent, standalone organization in 2018 by the Gold Standard Foundation with one ambition: use digitization to disrupt the carbon verification industry and make credible climate action the new business as usual.

Read our manifesto


Developing digital verification solutions to bring credibility to climate action

Verifiers are the credibility layer necessary to avoid greenwashing. They are key to ensuring carbon projects or value chain interventions aimed at creating GHG emission reductions or removals deliver on their promises and that the impact claimed is real. However, verifiers are not geared to interface with new climate tech players, which threatens the credibility of the entire ecosystem.

Established climate consulting and verification companies lack digitally enabled solutions for scalability and mass adoption.

SustainCERT brings the best of both worlds. Our deep climate expertise and digital solutions ensure impact are real, realized and in line with global standards or recognized best practice. 

New climate tech entrants unlock a range of benefits but lack access to verification capabilities and don’t solve the quality issue.

Our team

We are a team of determined people who believe our work can change the world. Think people with big ideas, tireless optimism and top-notch expertise. Our people work from across the globe – Switzerland, USA, India, Netherlands, China, etc. – speak different languages and all contribute to making SustainCERT special.
