Carbon Crediting Program

Carbon Crediting Program, also referred to as a carbon standard, an entity that develops and promulgates standards (i.e., requirements, methodologies, and protocols) that must be adhered to by project developers and third-party validators in order for a project to issue a carbon credit. The carbon crediting program lists projects on a publicly available registry system and issues carbon credits for the emission reductions or removals achieved by the activities. (VCMI,WWF)
