The German Initiative on Sustainable Cocoa (GISCO) regularly evaluates the results of its work. The basis for the evaluation are the GISCO objectives, measured in the three sustainability goals, as well as the strategic objectives. Both are evaluated according to determined indicators. GISCO creates a monitoring report for every fiscal year; the summarized results of the fiscal year 2018 are presented in the following.

Based on the new target, the German Initiative on Sustainable Cocoa is developing a monitoring system that is intended to provide information on the status of goal achievement through annual surveys. For each specific goal, individual indicators were developed at impact level to provide "key information" for assessing changes in relation to the goals set. As far as possible, these indicators are harmonised with the indicators of the ICCO, the Swiss Platform for Sustainable Cocoa, the Cocoa and Forest Initiative (CFI) and the Belgian Initiative Beyond Chocolate.

In the future, data collection will take place via publicly available information, selected impact studies and a survey of the members. Reporting will take place in an aggregated form and will be publicly available.
