The International Trade Centre (ITC), a joint organisation of the United Nations and World Trade Organization based in Geneva, Switzerland has developed five web portals: Trade Map, Market Access Map, Investment Map, Trade Competitiveness Map and Standards Map to enhance the transparency of global trade and market access and to facilitate market analyses and businesses strategies.

ITC collaborates with ICMM to reference the ICMM Sustainable Development Framework (SDF) onto the web-portal Standards Map, which enables analyses and reviews of sustainability initiatives using a unique set of social, environmental and economic criteria, audit best practices and good governance models.

There are currently 75 sustainability frameworks, codes and audit protocols referenced on Standards Map, such as Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance, SA8000, BSCI, among which ICMM SDF will also be referenced as of June 1st, 2012.
