Does Riverse conduct public consultation?

Yes, the Riverse Standard includes public consultation as part of the process for methodology creation and revisions. The Secretariat organizes a 30-day public consultation by publishing a "Call for Consultation," allowing stakeholders, industry experts, and the general public to provide insights and feedback. This feedback is then integrated into a Final Methodology Creation Proposition, which is validated by the Standard Advisory Board.

Public consultations are conducted at three levels:

  • For every main Standard documents release
  • For each new methodology and methodology major update
  • For each project during the certification process.
