Technical update webinar:
SDG Impact Tool + Preliminary Review Form

In March 2022, two important new documents enter into force, as communicated at the end of 2021:

  1. SDG Impact Tool developed to standardise and streamline SDG impact reporting for projects whilst ensuring impact claims are consistent, credible and meaningful.
  2. Preliminary Review Form designed to guide project developers in the first steps of the certification cycle and streamline the preliminary review process. 
We kindly invite you to a webinar aimed at experienced and new project developers and auditors to present these documents and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to share with any colleagues who may also be interested in these topics.

Article 6 Webinar Series  

Over the next year, we will run a series of webinars to enable participants to better understand some of the key trends and issues for operationalisating Article 6. A full list of proposed topics and timings can be found at Article 6 Webinar Series and registration for the first webinar on authorisations and adjustments is below:


22 February 2022
15:00 - 16:15 CET

Authorisations and adjustments under Article 6:
What you need to know, and what is still unknown

This webinar will cover the basics of host country authorisations under Article 6: the process, the benefits, the risks and the unknowns. It is intended to provide attendees with a better understanding of when an authorisation will be needed, the preconditions for a host country providing a letter of authorisation, and how and when this will then be translated into a corresponding adjustment.

Supporting initial authorisations under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement  


Following the adoption of Article 6 guidance at COP26, Gold Standard is preparing to support the generation and transaction of mitigation outcomes that will be authorised by host countries for use under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. As part of this, Gold Standard has established an 'Article 6 Early movers programme' to provide technical support and facilitate knowledge sharing to support the first applications of Article 6. 
We are now seeking an implementing partner to lead on the following tasks:

  1. Support engagement between 2-4 identified project developers and relevant host countries, towards the authorisation under Article 6 of emission reductions generated by an existing or planned mitigation activity.
  2. Produce a public report summarising lessons learned and best-practice actions and models identified through the above-mentioned engagement, for the benefit of other actors seeking to apply Article 6 guidance.

More information, including intended purpose of these tasks, expected outputs, timelines and the process to apply for this opportunity can be found in the Request for Proposal.
Completed proposals need to be submitted to Hugh Salway no later than 08 March 2022 - 18:00 CET.
