How does Riverse establish eligibility? What criteria does Riverse consider?

Our eligibility criteria include measurability, real, additionality, durability/reversal risks, no double counting, co-benefits, substitution, environmental and social do no harm, leakage, technology readiness level, targets alignment, and minimum impact. We have detailed our approach to those eligibility criteria in our Standard rules.

This document is highly inspired by the Code of Practices of ICROA, and the Core Carbon Principles from the ICVCM.

Otherwise, in France people sometimes refer to the 5 criteria set by ADEME (which overlap with the ICVCM)

  • Additionality
  • Measurability
  • Verification
  • Permanence
  • Unicity
