Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities

We have three Board seats reserved for members from traditionally underrepresented stakeholder communities. We are in the process of electing Board members that bring the necessary diversity of knowledge and experience to represent the Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities globally.

Our Executive Secretariat

The Integrity Council is supported by a Secretariat made up of four leading climate, finance, and standards NGOs: the Green Finance Institute, the British Standards Institution (BSI), the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES).
