Total carbon credits issued


  • Different types of standards that certify forest carbon projects, for the issuance of credits, are available (CDM, VCS and CCB, GS4GG, Plan Vivo).
  • In AF, we use Verra’s VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and CCB (Climate, Community & Biodiversity) programs, since they are the world’s most widely used in AFOLU (Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use) projects.
  • Verra’s role is to certify the concentration of carbon in the biomass and to enure that the carbon reductions or removals claimed by projects actually happen.
  • Biomass volume measurements are made, both in the determination of the baseline scenario and during the development of the project, as well as each time the increase in carbon is verified for the issuance of credits.
  • The baseline scenario refers to the emissions that would occur in the absence of a project. Emission reductions or carbon removals in excess of the baseline level are considered additional and, thus, eligible to generate a carbon credit.
  • Carbon stock changes are estimated according to the current carbon stock and projected biomass growth.

  • It helps to support global climate goals and to contribute to broader elements of sustainable development in rural communities.
  • Strong environmental stewardship can enhance the underlying value of timberland, as well as help to secure a price premium for timber-related products through certification programs and support sustainable long-term forest growth.
  • International certifications help to define and audit many forestry industry players’ environmental and social performance, while driving improved standards.
