Changes to Standards

Sun+Earth Standards – Proposed Changes

Just like the gardens we certify, the Sun+Earth Certified standards must also be weeded and pruned from time-to-time. As our inspectors and final reviewers work with the standards, we are able to identify parts of the standards that need improvement. In 2022, our Board of Directors approved proposed changes to Core Requirement 8.5 of the Sun+Earth standards. Additionally, they approved proposed additions to Annex 1 and 2 of the Sun+Earth Certified standards. We would like to give our community an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed changes prior to finalization and adoption of the modifications.

If you are interested in reviewing the proposed changes, you can review our current standards here. The Proposed Changes can be reviewed

You can use the form below to make comments about the proposed changes. This opportunity for public comment will be open for 60 days, from Nov. 15, 2022 until Jan. 14, 2023.
