unveiled a plan to develop a collaborative certification system to ensure that the changes resulting from Nature-based Solutions for Societal Challenges (NbS) are truly sustainable.

Under IUCN’s NbS certification system, business entities interested in obtaining certification of their Nature-based Solutions intervention will be able to apply for certification through one of several existing sustainability certification schemes recognised by IUCN, namely the Forest Stewardship Council, the Gold Standard, the Initiative for Responsible Mining Assurance, FairTrade International, and the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.
