Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)

The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program is the world’s most widely used greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program in the voluntary carbon market. It drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature. VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere. The VCS Program is a critical and evolving component in the ongoing effort to protect our shared environment.

Global Carbon Council (GCC)

The Global Carbon Council (GCC) is a voluntary carbon offsetting program that aims to assist organizations to reduce their carbon footprints, helping the sectoral economy to diversify by adopting low-carbon pathways, and catalyzing climate actions on the ground.
