Today’s sustainability standards systems are challenged to keep up with a rapidly evolving technological landscape. While the corporate world has learned to integrate data flows across global supply chains, most standards systems are lagging behind. This report explores the relevance of current trends in technology to sustainability standards – from mobile data collection and the internet of things, to open data and blockchains – and proposes a roadmap for development. A survey of ISEAL members and focus group conversations with external technology experts informed the recommendations of this report.
