Versions of the Standard Rules

The current Standard Rules compose the 5th version, the previous versions were published with the following agenda:

Why it's important

For the last 12 months, we worked on the conception of these standard rules, which explain our methodology, structure and values when it comes to carbon credit certification and emission. We have recently conducted important changes to our Standard Rules to render them more relevant and efficient, enabling European Greentechs to access the carbon credit market. We are excited to launch the public consultation in order to collect all the comments you may have on the standard rules, so as to shape the standard to maximise impact on nature, people and climate. 

This public consultation aims to gather all feedback from relevant stakeholders that will benefit from this new carbon credit standard on the following feedback form.
