Verified Carbon Standard

Beyond Neutral® sources high quality, accredited carbon credits from Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) carbon offset projects.

If price is a key determinant, VCS carbon offsets are often the lowest cost option but this doesn’t mean that they are low quality.

Verified Carbon Standard Features

VCS accredited carbon offset projects:

  • meet accepted quality standards;
  • are independently verified;
  • are uniquely numbered; and
  • are transparently listed in a central database (VCS Project Database).

VCS carbon offset projects create Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) for the voluntary carbon offset market.  Each VCU:

  • has a unique serial number,
  • is listed in the VCS Project Database, and
  • is able to be tracked from issuance to retirement.

This chain of custody ensures that all VCUs are:

  • real,
  • additional,
  • permanent,
  • independently verified,
  • unique, and
  • traceable.

VCS Project Types and Benefits

VCS projects include:

Many VCS projects create sustainability co-benefits so you can purchase carbon credits from projects which:

  • improve local infrastructure (bridges, roads, electricity supply)
  • improve access to medicines and education
  • increase local employment and improve opportunities for local businesses
  • reduce firewood gathering
  • stop deforestation and habitat loss
  • improve the living conditions of women and children.

Beyond Neutral® identifies each project’s sustainability co-benefits during the quoting process.
