Gold Standard for the Global Goals

The Gold Standard for the Global Goals are world-leading standard for climate and sustainable development projects.

Established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs as a best practice standard to certify projects that reduce carbon emissions under the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and foster sustainable development. 

Last year Underdogs United ran a Clean Air campaign with in partnership with Impact Carbon, a Gold Standard project developer. Through this project, we funded clean cookstoves to improve air quality for families in Uganda. Gold Standard now has more than 80 NGO supporters and 1400+ projects in over 80 countries, creating billions of dollars of shared value from climate and development action worldwide.
