As the Northern hemisphere is entering another summer with record-high temperatures, we are reminded of the importance of advancing climate action and sustainable development, and are glad to share a number of announcements about this work with you.
We recently released a timeline for our approach to third-party crypto instruments and tokens and several other updates about the VCS Program, including a consultation on VCU labels and a pre-consultation on a new market label.
