What is required for a carbon credit project to be approved by Verra? 

For a project to meet Verra’s standards, it undergoes ongoing review by both Verra and a qualified third party. This ensures that the project complies with the rules and requirements of the standard, applies the methodologies correctly, follows local laws and regulations, and does not cause any negative impacts on local stakeholders. By verifying and certifying projects, Verra ensures that carbon credits truly represent real, measurable, additional, permanent, independently verified, conservatively estimated, uniquely numbered, and transparently listed climate impacts.
