Verified Carbon Standard Methodologies
Methodologies are technical documents used by project developers to quantify the GHG benefits of different project types. They also set out requirements for project developers to determine project boundaries, set baselines and assess additionality. All methodologies set out criteria to determine whether a particular project is eligible to apply the methodology. Projects registering with VCS can use approved VCS methodologies, any methodology approved under the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism, and methodologies developed by the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) with the exception of their forest protocols.
