Here you will find requirements relevant to the ICR program.
The ICR program relies on the robust ISO 14064-2 Greenhouse gases - Part 2: Specification with guidance at the project level for quantification, monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emission reductions or removal enhancements, as criteria for projects registering with the ICR.
In addition to ISO 14064-2, the ICR requirement document is the backbone of the ICR program. It provides the requirements that projects registered with ICR need to conform to.
Criteria for validation
A methodology refers to a set of rules and procedures used to calculate, estimate, and monitor the amount of GHG emissions reduced or removed by a specific project. It is a standardized approach that defines how emissions reductions or removals are quantified, monitored, and verified. The ICR methodology requirements provide requirements for developing new methodologies under the ICR program. The purpose is to support project proponents, methodology developers, and validation/verification bodies (VVBs) in developing and assessing new innovative methodologies.
Criteria for validation
Validation and verification provide an independent and transparent process for ensuring the integrity and credibility of greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals.
