Foreword

Andre de Freitas, Board Chair

2011 was an important year for ISEAL as we embarked on our tenth year of efforts to improve the effectiveness and credibility of sustainability standards. I was honoured to serve as Board Chair in 2011 for an organisation that maintains such a unique position of expertise and credibility within the diverse and complex landscape that sustainability standards operate in. With almost a decade behind us of substantial learning and collaborative projects, we realised that there is still much more to be done. The year brought important successes such as the launch of our Scaling Up Strategy, providing a clearly defined path for ISEAL members to increase our social, environmental and economic impacts. The strategy gives us four goals for working together: 1. position our organisations as the leaders we are 2. develop strong external partnerships

2

3. focus on increasing access to certification 4. strive to become even more effective and efficient Since the launch of the Scaling Up Strategy, a number of activities have evolved within the ISEAL community to meet these four goals, including a project to increase the use of sustainability standards in emerging economies and among public procurement officials, and a project to reduce barriers to certification for small producers. The year also brought challenges such as continued scrutiny of whether sustainability standards are delivering positive social and environmental impacts. In response, and building on the development of the ISEAL Impacts Code, several of our members joined ISEAL in a groundbreaking project to begin to understand and communicate the impacts of our programmes, and to use that knowledge to improve our impacts over time. Supported by the

Ford Foundation, the Demonstrating Impacts project upholds ISEAL’s goal to promote shared learning as a way to increase the impacts and credibility of sustainability standards. Finally, I must announce that 2011 marked the final year of my three year term as Board Chair. As I look back on these years serving as Chair, I am very proud of the accomplishments we have made as an alliance: from defining our common interests so that we may find innovative solutions to our challenges, to defining good practices that help guide emerging standards. Working together, our alliance has become a stronger one. Together, we are bringing about significant and positive changes in the sectors we work in.

Andre de Freitas, Board Chair


Rik Kutsch Lojenga, Executive Director of the Union for Ethical BioTrade (UEBT) became the new ISEAL Board Chair in December 2011. Rik has been leading the work of UEBT since its launch in 2007, promoting private sector engagement in the ethical sourcing of biodiversity. Previously, Rik worked on ethical sourcing for over a decade with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). “I am privileged to serve as the Board Chair of the ISEAL Alliance. ISEAL finds itself in a rapidly changing standards landscape. Its work on issues such as scaling up, demonstrating impact and growing in emerging markets is of great importance. I look forward to collaborating with ISEAL staff, Board and Stakeholder Council on these topics over the next few years."

Welcome

Sasha Courville, Executive Director

Sustainability standards now cover more than 10% of global production in key commodities and sectors such as wild-capture fisheries, tea, coffee, and bananas. With an increasingly visible presence in global markets, the demonstration effect of pioneering ISEAL members such as the Marine Stewardship Council, Fairtrade International, UTZ Certified, and the Rainforest Alliance / Sustainable Agriculture Network provides solid ground to expand the application of sustainability standards into new commodities and sectors, such as soy, palm oil, sugarcane, cattle, tourism, mining and electronic waste, among others. Business champions are increasingly recognising the value that these tools can play in supply chain management and in ensuring longterm access to supply and are making major commitments that will affect entire sectors and value chains. To this end, ISEAL and its members launched our Scaling Up Strategy in 2011 to identify how ISEAL members can dramatically increase

their social, environmental and economic impacts. Sustainability standards are at a critical point of inflection where they have the potential to make a significant contribution to transforming global markets. Whether they will reach their full potential in fostering labour and human rights and ecological sustainability will depend in part on how future market leaders engage with them and use them to accomplish their own sustainable development objectives. As power drivers behind global markets start to shift, demonstrating value and building support among emerging economy leaders will also be a critical requirement for sustainability standards. Seeing this challenge and opportunity, ISEAL worked throughout 2011 to secure the commitment and support of the Swiss State Secretariat of Economic Affairs (SECO) to work together over the next three years to expand the understanding, use of, and participation in sustainability standards in emerging economies such as Brazil, India and China.

This groundbreaking project will also strengthen the use of sustainability standards in sustainable public procurement, paving the way for broader government engagement At the time of writing this Annual Report, I will be in the final months of seven exhilarating years of leading the ISEAL Alliance. My decision to remain closer to my home in Australia and spend more time with my growing family was made easier knowing that ISEAL has very talented staff in place and a bright future. The organisation also has a stable financial foundation and ground-breaking projects such as the one with SECO that will expand the acceptance of sustainability standards on a global level. ISEAL is well positioned to shape the future of the sustainability standards movement and I look forward to cheering them on in the years ahead.

Dr. Sasha Courville, Executive Director

Scaling Up With 10% or more of global production certified in forestry, fisheries and certain agricultural commodities, sustainability standards have the potential to transform global markets. In order to achieve this, standards systems must scale up with unprecedented speed and efficiency.

10


The Scaling Up Strategy

Over the past two decades, ISEAL members have established market approaches to address some of the world’s most pressing problems. They have had a major impact on the ground while creating growing demand for sustainable products. The private sector and governments have become increasingly interested in the potential that sustainability standards have to transform global markets. But in order to achieve this transformation, our members must scale up quickly. In June 2011 ISEAL launched the Scaling Up Strategy, providing a path for our members to dramatically increase their social, environmental and economic impacts.

The strategy identifies four ways that standards systems can have a greater impact by working together, and how they can continue to play a vital role in bringing about sustainable development solutions: Positioning credible standards systems as leaders in achieving sustainable development Leveraging the support of key external actors for scaling up Increasing producer and enterprise access to standards Increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of standards systems

ISEAL’s new activities that support the Strategy: work to increase the use of sustainability standards in emerging economies a project to build awareness of sustainability standards among public procurement officials collaborative learning projects aimed at reducing barriers to certification projects aimed at demonstrating and improving the impacts of sustainability standards

11


Scaling Up the Impacts of Standards Systems ISEAL’s 2011 Conference “Scaling Up the Impacts of Standards Systems” was the theme of this year’s conference as ISEAL launched the Scaling Up Strategy, a programme of action for ISEAL members to increase their social and environmental impacts and transform global markets. More than 150 people convened in Zurich for the Public Day, which saw a marked increase in the business presence and diverse representation from emerging economies. The conference deepened the sense of community among ISEAL

supporters and confirmed the importance of gathering together standards experts and users. Session topics included approaches for measuring impacts, opportunities for addressing climate and water and the need for clarity in claims. An illuminating opening panel confirmed the critical importance of emerging economies for the growth of the standards movement.

“ The Scaling Up Strategy allowed us to think

more deeply in terms of cooperation, which we made public together with Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified. ” Fairtrade International

12


The ISEAL 100

14


In 2011 we published the ISEAL 100 survey to take the pulse of users of sustainability standards in business, government and civil society. The findings showed that sustainability standards are increasingly a widely used tool to reach social and environmental objectives. On average, respondents use four different sustainability standards. Two thirds use Fairtrade, FSC, MSC, Rainforest Alliance, organic or a combination of the five. More than 70% would consider using more standards to achieve their sustainability goals.

Four out of five respondents mentioned the value of using sustainability standards to increase efficiency. Others valued marketing opportunities and the ability to improve sustainability performance. To increase trust in standards systems and promote their use, respondents cited value in credible verification, multi-stakeholder systems and good governance. Frustrations cited included cost, complexity and overlap in the standards landscape. Many spoke of the need to encourage harmonisation and order among existing sustainability standards. Nonetheless, half of those surveyed spoke out against a “catch-all ecolabel.”

“We analyse different factors like

ISEAL membership, the reputation of

the standards with opinion makers and our own assessment of the standard.” Unilever

15


Credibility Principles

16


At ISEAL we aim to increase the impacts of sustainability standards by improving their effectiveness and creating the conditions for their increased uptake. A major part of this is to help people understand what good practice looks like for different aspects of a standard. ISEAL is soon to launch a global conversation to produce a broadly agreed set of Credibility Principles that represent the core values and characteristics of effective sustainability standards. We intend for these Principles to become the international reference for credible standards and certification and the foundation that underpins more technical guidance tools. During 2011 we began to stimulate conversation about the draft Credibility Principles to prepare for a consultation process that will take place throughout 2012.

Draft Credibility Principles Clear Objectives and Scope Transparency Multi-stakeholder Relevant, Measurable, Objective Criteria Local Applicability and Global Consistency Impartiality and Independence of Assurance

Consistency of Assurance Results Traceability Accurate Claims Complaints and Appeals Mechanisms Learning and Continual Improvement Inter-operability

Accessibility

“ Standards create trust between us and our stakeholders and consumers. � Carrefour

17


Improving the Assurance Process

18


The ISEAL Codes of Good Practice are our most broadly recognised tools, providing guidance on how standards systems can effectively and credibly deliver on their social and environmental impacts. These Codes are applied by leading standards systems and compliance is an ISEAL membership requirement. In 2011 ISEAL began to develop a Code of Good Practice for Assuring Compliance with Social and Environmental Standards (the Assurance Code) due to the clear signals we received over the years from ISEAL members that delivering high quality assurance in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner is not only critical, but also challenging.

Major challenges cited included auditor competence, affordability, transparency and accessibility. The Assurance Code was drafted and underwent its first public consultation in 2011. More than 800 comments were received during the first two-month consultation period, reflecting the strong, highly constructive input from ISEAL’s stakeholders.

ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice Standard-Setting Code (2004) Impacts Code (2010) Assurance Code (Expected 2012)

The Assurance Code will apply to scheme owners and the certification and accreditation bodies that assess compliance within those schemes. The final Code will be completed in 2012.

“The Assurance Code will improve the quality and

consistency of the assurance process and will support the appropriate use of assurance tools that are rigorous, accessible and scalable.” Patrick Mallet, ISEAL’s Credibility Director

Demonstrating Impacts

20


Sustainability standards address significant challenges in the world today, but there remains a critical need to understand the social and environmental impacts they deliver. Our members have committed to the task and actively contributed to the development of the ISEAL Impacts Code that requires standards to evaluate their progress regularly and use the learning to improve their programmes.

be used to inform the design of common indicators that could be pilot tested in the future. As members work on developing their theories of change, this feeds into choices of which unit of analysis to focus on (household, worker, enterprise) and which common “pathways to impact” (yield improvements, increase in net crop income, increase in household income, etc) should be tracked through the common indicators.

Through support from the Ford Foundation secured in 2011, we began to work to further understand the contribution that certification has made towards alleviating poverty. Nine ISEAL members came together with external experts to discuss common poverty indicators and obtain expert input into how poverty can be defined and measured. The highly interactive meeting made clear that members’ “theories of change” and the research agenda related to poverty reduction impacts should

ISEAL also provided support for M&E system development for our members, including creating a list serve for member M&E staff and a regular monthly newsletter to share resources, tips and information. ISEAL assisted members on basic research design and research methodology issues, as well as on theories of change and offered a webinar by Rainforest Alliance about incorporating theory of change into organisational planning.

The Ford-funded project supports ISEAL’s goal to promote a culture of learning and improvement among our members and ensure that standards continue to play a significant role in moving industry towards sustainability.

87% of our members agree that participating in ISEAL helps them improve their social and environmental impacts.

21


Some thoughts from members participating in the Demonstrating Impacts project... “ This project is the most valuable contribution ISEAL has made to our organisation in the last year. ” “ We need to create more efficient and results-oriented standards with fewer words and document requirements, but more impact on the ground. ” “ While [the development of an M&E system] is new to us, we enjoyed listening to others’ experience to better understand the important elements of an M&E system. ”

Policy Monitoring

24


Monitoring the Landscape ISEAL provides ongoing policy monitoring and trends analyses to drive collective strategies for promoting uptake of credible standards by leaders in government and business. In 2011 ISEAL closely monitored and served as a point-of-contact for members on such topics as: The renewed potential for trade conflict in the World Trade Organisation around the legality of sustainability standards under international trade law arising out of the Tuna-Dolphin dispute Discussion fora and collaboration tools such as the Trade Standards Practioners Network and the Trade for Sustainable Development Database Initiatives that present unique opportunities and implications, such as the Global Social Compliance Programme and the Green Products Roundtable

Achievements witnessed in 2011 resulting from our collective policy efforts included explicit recognition in the International Finance Corporation’s new “Performance Standard on Environmental and Social Issues” that encourages the use of credible standards and identifies ISEAL Code compliance as a mark of credibility.

Facilitating Collaboration & Advocacy ISEAL holds a distinctive role to coordinate collective responses from ISEAL members that advocate the interests of credible standards. In 2011 this was best demonstrated by ISEAL’s submission to the European Commission on the review of its public procurement rules as part of the Europe 2020 Strategy. Through the support of members, ISEAL’s submission articulated the role that international standards can play in helping governments to advance the sustainability agenda by making it easier to procure sustainable products and services.

81% of our members and 95% of our affiliates see ISEAL as a key player in shaping the sustainability landscape according to our 2011 survey.

25


We will be taking this stream of work forward in 2012 through a SECO-supported project on sustainable public procurement. Another policy development that attracted the interest of ISEAL members was an initiative to produce a European standard for “Traceable and Sustainable Cocoa.” Together with our cocoa-certifying members, ISEAL submitted a position paper voicing concerns about the risks that a European standard could carry for best practice in cocoa supply chains. ISEAL will ensure that our collective viewpoint is communicated as the initiative carries forward into 2012.

Supporting Efforts in Climate Change For ISEAL members, climate change continued as a strategic priority in 2011. ISEAL assisted members to identify appropriate tools for greenhouse gas accounting and conducted a study examining the entry points through which standards can help producers become more resilient. As part of our climate change agenda, ISEAL also continued our work on supporting biofuels standards systems to collaborate and engage in policy issues such as the European Renewable Energy Directive.

“ ISEAL initiated serious discussions on specific

topics such as GHG accounting, food security,

and indirect impacts. We valued their flexibility and understanding of each standard systems’ situation ”

Growing our Organisation


2011 saw ISEAL continuing to strengthen our organisation. We filled new staff positions in monitoring & evaluation and communications, and created a position focused on community support for our members. We developed a set of human resources policies, strengthened our internal communications and drafted ISEAL’s internal values to stimulate a positive organisational culture. We also began the first phase to redevelop our web site and improve the ISEAL online community. We continued to upgrade our information technology resources throughout the year and to strengthen our internal M&E systems. We merged the communications and fundraising functions, built our M&E work into our projects and created more balance among staff levels to streamline costs and allow more funds to flow towards our programmes.

ISEAL’s Changing Look As the ISEAL Alliance continues to reach out and engage with new audiences, it is important that the way we communicate is professional, consistent and representative of the work of our members. This includes developing a recognisable visual identity to be used across our various communications channels, both on and offline, that stays fresh and grows with the organisation. Following a collaborative process between our staff and Board, we worked with an external design agency to re-brand the ISEAL Alliance; unveiling our new look in March 2011. As well as a new logo, we now have a new colour palette and a recognisable symbol (featured at the bottom of this page). We have also worked with our members to develop a library of high quality photos; some of which are featured in this report!
