Since 2005 Verra, based in Washington, D.C., has developed and administered a registry that implements multiple standards.
Climate Community and Biodiversity Standard (CCB)
The Climate, Community, & Biodiversity (CCB) standard assures that social, economic and biodiversity criteria are met. Projects are predominantly specific to land use. An independent third-party verifies the social benefits that accompany a CCB certified carbon project.
What sets Verra apart from other standards
Verra is the largest registry in the world and has been a leader in carbon markets.
