Last week, Cercarbono proudly received the official endorsement by the International Carbon Reduction and Offsetting Alliance (ICROA).
ICROA’s approval ensures that Cercarbono adheres to the highest standards of integrity, encompassing good governance, open access, and rigorous validation and verification of carbon projects, all of which are rigorously assessed by third-party evaluators. T
his endorsement is especially significant as it affirms that Cercarbono not only complies with these stringent standards but also consistently maintains the highest levels of environmental integrity and transparency in the carbon market. Moreover, this endorsement is vital in demonstrating Cercarbono’s ongoing commitment to maintaining exceptional levels of environmental integrity and transparency within the carbon market. It serves as evidence that Cercarbono’s standard meets assessment criteria rooted in principles of independence, governance, registration, validation/verification, and environmental and social impact.
We highlight that this endorsement elevates the potential of Cercarbono’s credits, significantly enhancing its ability to have a significant impact on climate change and sustainable environmental initiatives.
For Alex Saer, CEO of Cercarbono, this ICROA approval is crucial for the company’s continuous improvement. He emphasized that all recommendations provided by ICROA were considered and implemented, which has meant driving positive changes in regulatory processes and transformative initiatives that exemplify the commitment to quality and integrity in the carbon market.
ICROA is an organisation dedicated to supporting entities through advocacy and action-oriented activities aligned with the highest standards of environmental integrity and the Paris Agreement within the Voluntary Carbon Market.
