Simple but comprehensive requirements
Best practices for systems improvement
The CCS strives to continuously evolve, through a learning by doing process involving consultation with a wide range of stakeholders and following guidelines of ISEAL and WWF's Principles for Credible Standards and Certification Schemes.
Governance and Oversight
Recognising that there is a huge diversity of circumstances, technologies, and approaches that can be used by projects in different parts of the world, the CCS adopts a ‘learning-by-doing’ approach and strives for continuous improvement of its requirements based on the experience learned with participating projects.
To guide this learning process, an Advisory Group and a Technical Advisory Committee were created with representation from both the ‘buy-side’ (corporates, donors, investors) as well as technical, scientific, and social sector organisations interested in the social and environmental quality of the initiatives promoted.
