In 2014, approximately 9 certification schemes, 56 private sector organisations, and 12 financial institutions included High Conservation Values (HCV) as a key requirement in their principles and criteria, or their global procurement and investment policies.

To help guarantee consistency in the implementation of the HCV approach accross commodities and regions, the HCV Resource Network implemented a series of activities and projects in 2014.

Last year, the HCVRN launched the HCV Assessor Licensing Scheme, held a workshop in Ghana aimed at identifying challenges and opportunities of identifying, managing and monitoring HCVs 5&6, published the Common Guidance for HCV Management and Monitoring, among many other activities.
