The role played by technical experts in low carbon project development from certification to credits issuances.
To support the great traction for carbon offsetting, and mitigate the impact and greenwashing risks, certifiers like ours, Gold Standard, are working hard on developing tools and strengthening their methodologies to ensure transparency and accountability. Our technical team is participating actively in the public consultations run by Gold Standard, to ensure that projects interests are well served, and all components have been considered. Their active contribution is important as they facilitate the development of global standards that apply locally. They are a field partner for international institutions as well as the project voices facilitating access to the carbon market.
Gold Standard recently released two new methodologies on the clean cooking and water projects that our technical team is now applying for the upcoming carbon credits issuances.
Apart from being able to take on the ever-changing standards and methodology, their technical expertise is also key to streamline the MRV processes and guarantee yearly issuances, and down the line revenues, for the project to scale.
