Connecting Projects to Carbon Markets
Inside this issue
The voluntary carbon market (VCM) allows a buyer to offset their carbon emissions through carbon credits and verified projects. The carbon credits are certified by registries where the credits can retire credits to claim the reductions or sell them to another entity through the registry. Today, a carbon credit issued by one registry cannot be moved to another.
Registries to know:
* American Carbon Registry
* Climate Action Reserve
* The Gold Standard
* Verra - Verified Carbon Standard
* California Air Resources Board
Verra represents about 60% of the total offset credits issued, California Air Resources Board accounts for 17%, Gold Standard represents 13%, and the Climate Action Reserve and American Carbon Registry account for around 4% each.
Based on registry data, there are over 6,000 projects to offset emissions. The projects include renewable energy, forestry, industrial manufacturing, agriculture, carbon capture, and waste management. With documentation on each project, buyers can choose from a wide variety of projects across the globe.
