08/2021 | Report

This report assesses several carbon standards, focusing on criteria that influence the integrity of carbon credits: additionality, baseline setting, quantification of emission reductions, permanence, and leakage. Most attention is paid to avoided deforestation projects and programs, which produce the overwhelming majority of forest carbon credits traded on voluntary markets to date. The report also distinguishes credits generated at the project level from larger jurisdictional programs.
