Verified carbon standard (VCS)
The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) is a voluntary emission reduction program and standard developed and run by the nonprofit Verra organization. The VCS program is accepted by many stakeholders in the field of carbon offsetting and is accepted as a reference. The VSC program certifies useful projects that contribute to the reduction of GHG emissions within the scope of standards.
In addition to this certification program, VCS also offers a crediting mechanism where carbon credits are granted to projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The VCS program is currently the largest lender of carbon credits. The carbon credits granted can be used by other entities in the carbon markets to offset their emissions. To date, more than 1,806 certified VCS projects have made significant contributions to climate change by reducing 928 million tCO2 and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere. Thus, project owners have verified carbon units (VCU – Verified Carbon Units).
We work with VCS to help you develop the most qualified projects in the fight against climate change and realize long-term business opportunities, and evaluate your projects in accordance with VCS standards.
