VSS are known to have a positive impact in areas where certified entities operate but VSS can also influence the enabling environment. There is not yet a lot of evidence of these so-called systemic impacts of VSS on the enabling environment. This white paper, produced by Aidenvironment and commissioned by WWF and ISEAL, aims to contribute to this evidence gap as well as provide a working definition for the concept of systemic impacts.
