The Reserve establishes high quality standards for carbon offset projects, oversees independent third-party verification bodies, issues carbon credits generated from such projects and tracks the transaction of credits over time in a transparent, publicly-accessible system.

Verified Carbon Standard
The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) is a greenhouse gas accounting program used by projects around the world to verify and issue carbon credits in voluntary markets. VCS was founded in 2005 by business and environmental leaders who identified a need for greater quality assurance in voluntary markets. Our founding partners – the Climate Group, the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and the World Economic Forum – convened a team of global carbon market experts to draft the first VCS requirements. The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) joined the effort soon after.
