Gold Standard Carbon Offsets

Carbon Offsets that are Gold Standard ensure that projects in carbon markets represent the highest levels of environmental integrity and deliver other verified benefits to both local communities and ecosystems. Read more on Gold Standard Carbon Offsets below.

Established by the World Wildlife Fund, the Gold Standard certifies carbon offset projects that demonstrate carbon sequestration outcomes as well as positively impact the economy, health, welfare and/or environment of the community where the project is located.

All Gold Standard carbon credits represent the reduction or removal of one tonne of CO2 equivalent, plus the Sustainable Development Goals benefits associated with the project from which they are issued.

Gold Standard continues to represent the best that can be achieved in carbon markets, featuring the most stringent environmental and social safeguards, local stakeholder consultation as well as many other requirements for accreditation. More on these can be found here.

Carbon Landscapes is working with Gold Standard to ensure our carbon offsets are compliant to the standards that Gold Standard set. For example, our Gariwerd Restoration Project is aiming to achieve Goals 13 (Climate Action: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts) and 15 (Life on Land: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss).

By 2030, ensure the conservation of mountain ecosystems, including their biodiversity, in order to enhance their capacity to provide benefits that are essential for sustainable development is a target set under Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals that Carbon Landscapes is aiming to achieve.

Take urgent and significant action to reduce the degradation of natural habitats, halt the loss of biodiversity and, by 2020, protect and prevent the extinction of threatened species is a target set under Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals that Carbon Landscapes is aiming to achieve.
