Approved Methodologies

Verra methodologies outline detailed instructions for determining GHG emission reduction and removals for a wide variety of nature based solutions. The VCS program allows any methodology developed under the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism as well as methodologies developed by the Climate Action Reserve, with the exception of their forest protocols, to be used alongside their native methodologies.
