Plan Vivo

The Plan Vivo Standard provides a support framework for smallholders and rural communities, principally in the developing world, to manage their natural resources more sustainably.

Plan Vivo is a certification body that administers the Plan Vivo Standard – a tried and tested framework for community land use and forestry projects that strive to make a difference. We certify projects that demonstrate sustainability over the long-term and oversee the projects to ensure they truly benefit people’s livelihoods and sustain vital ecosystems. Plan Vivo is internationally recognised for its focus on ethical and fairly-traded climate services, meaning a greater share of climate finance (60+%) reaches those who most need it.
