History

Foundation of Cercarbono

Cercarbono was established at the end of 2016 with the aim of providing sustainable solutions to the planet’s climate problem.

Issuance of the Decree 926 of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (Colombia)

The issuance of Decree 926 of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit gave Cercarbono the opportunity to work in the carbon market and to support the challenges and voluntary agreements that the Colombian government has assumed at the international level.

Partnership with EcoRegistry

Cercarbono created an alliance with EcoRegistry, the projects registration platform, based on BlockChain technology that guarantees the security, traceability, and transparency of projects throughout the entire cycle: registration, validation, monitoring, verification, certification, issuance, and use of credits.

First Certifications

We generated the first certifications in 2019, starting with projects in the forestry sector, aligned with the rules and regulations of each country, and operating under an efficient process.
