ICR Requirements and ISO 14064-2
Scroll down to read more about how ICRs framework, having its foundation in ISO 14064-2 and principles for credit issuance that arose under UNFCCC’s Clean Development Mechanism, enables project activities’ access to the voluntary carbon market more efficiently and ensures that ICCs are high-integrity carbon credits qualified for voluntary use across the globe.

All projects need to provide information on their mitigation outcome using ICR templates.
Validation and Verification
Validation/verification bodies (VVBs) assess projects for conformity to ICRs Requirements, ISO 14064-2. VVBs are qualified, independent third parties which ICR approves to conduct validation and verification based on their accreditation.
Following the carbon principles ensures that projects generate real, additional, transparent, and verifiable climate impact with high environmental and social integrity.
