Guidance note: Setting gender responsive sustainability standards

Tackling gender inequalities is becoming increasingly important for voluntary sustainability systems to address.

Sustainability systems that are not gender-responsive can result in unnecessary health and safety risks for women and girls, and lead to unequal impacts and unintended consequences. This briefing note provides a collection of good practices to support sustainability systems, including ISEAL Community Members, to get started and progress on gender issues.
