Selected initiatives and publications on local certification
If you’re looking for more inspiration and guidance on local certification or other Collective Action projects, feel free to reach out to our Collective Action team at any time. We have 17+ years of experience in the field and a network of contacts all over the world. All our advice to Collective Action practitioners is free.
The following initiatives have very different structures, goals and approaches to certification. This reflects their very different contexts – in terms of industry, geography, and socio-economic background.
What they have in common is their use of a Collective Action approach to help build trust between stakeholders and find transparent solutions that work for everyone.
Practitioners can take inspiration, keeping in mind their own context.
