The Global Conservation Standard is a non-profit organization with the aim of increasing effectivity and credibility of nature-based solutions by addressing the underlying causes of land degradation. 

We cooperate with a variety of actors from industry and civil society. We make nature protection pay for land users, so that forests, wetlands or other natural resources become more valuable if they stay alive. 

The GCS Secretariat is based in Offenburg/Germany. For any inquiries, please feel free to use the below contact form or alternatively send an e-mail to
