Gold Standard has recently appointed Claire Willers as the new Senior Manager for Market Relations. Her role will be focused on building relations and providing dedicated support to our project developer community. To help inform this new position and to enhance the service and support provided we have developed a short survey to capture your thoughts and feedback on four key areas:

  1. Standard setting and the certification process
  2. Project developer engagement and support
  3. Impact Registry
  4. Communications

For Registry users that do not develop projects the survey enables you to skip the sections that are not relevant. 

The survey should take between 5-15 minutes to complete depending on the level of feedback and closes 17 June 2022.

PARTICIPATE IN THE SURVEY

PROJECT DEVELOPER VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLES

In addition to seeking feedback through the Gold Standard Survey 2022, Gold Standard is organising a set of virtual roundtables to hear directly from our community of project developers about the opportunities for growth, challenges that they face, and how Gold Standard can support in a rapidly growing and changing market. The roundtables will be chaired by Margaret Kim, Chief Executive Office of the Gold Standard, and supported by members of the Secretariat.

To enable as many project developers as possible to participate across the sessions, we politely request that each project developer limits participation to one roundtable, and to one representative.

If you are not a project developer, but are interested in participating in a virtual roundtable with Gold Standard, please register your interest and we will review the demand for hosting more of these events.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and thank you in advance for your participation.

 TERMS UPDATE 


GOLD STANDARD RELEASES 
UPDATED TERMS FOR THE REGISTRY 

 

Gold Standard has always embraced the potential for technology to drive greater ambition, efficiency, and transparency within the carbon market. Earlier this year, we outlined our views on how to harness blockchain for better, through real representation of carbon credits, full transparency of attributes of the underlying credit and compliance with the terms of the issuing standard.

In support of these goals, and in line with the initial findings of IETA’s Task Group on Digital Climate Markets, we have today revised our Registry Terms of Use (see clause 13) to clarify that the creation of tokens, cryptocurrencies or other digital instruments or assets is not permitted without Gold Standard’s express written consent. No other changes have been made at this time.

This step will help ensure that we can continue to perform a function that market participants rightly expect of us: to provide a transparent and reliable record of the status of credits through our registry. This is a foundational requirement to underpin confidence and trade in the carbon market, and one that is fortunately recognised by organisations intending to tokenise credits in a robust and integrated way.

Following consultation with the Working Group on Digital Assets for Climate Impact and taking into account the initial findings of IETA’s Task Group on Digital Climate Markets, we intend to outline the criteria that Gold Standard will apply to determine whether to provide consent for the creation of Unit-related digital assets. In the meantime, we remain open to continued engagement with blockchain providers and other interested parties.
