ICR Templates

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.

Fundamental principles

Following the carbon principles ensures that projects generate real, additional, transparent, and verifiable climate impact with high environmental and social integrity.
