Co-founded by SustainCERT and Gold Standard, the Value Change Initiative is a multi-stakeholder forum bringing together some of the world’s largest companies, leading civil society actors, and internationally recognized climate frameworks to collectively focus on defining best practices for Scope 3 emission reductions and removals at scale.
It is a forum for practitioners that identifies barriers to scaling value chain action, proposes and tests practical solutions, and publishes guidance on the consensus generated.
