Verified Emission Reductions (VERs)

“Verified Emission Reductions” (VERs) are a type of carbon credit that represents a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that has been independently verified and certified by a third party. They are often used in carbon offset programs and voluntary carbon markets, where individuals or companies can purchase these credits to compensate for their own emissions. VERs are typically generated by projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions, such as renewable energy projects, or methane capture projects. The verification process ensures the legitimacy and accuracy of the emission reductions claimed by these projects.

VERs Standards mainly used

Several standards exist for verifying and certifying emission reductions in the context of carbon offset projects.

Verified Carbon Standard (VCS): VCS is one of the most widely used standards for verifying and certifying greenhouse gas emission reduction projects. It ensures that emission reduction projects adhere to rigorous methodologies and guidelines.
