The Inclusive Carbon Standard (ICS) is a next-generation standard focusing on transparency and accountability of carbon projects. Additionally, we are lowering the barriers of entry so everyone can participate in a better future.
UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE STANDARD
At this stage we are not limiting registration of any project types.
This includes: renewable energy and energy efficiency; reforestation, conservation, sub-soil agriculture; waste and recycling (to name a few).
You will still need to prove additionality of your project, to our technical committee, and comply within the rules of the standard before your project can be registered.
In principle, there is no reason for any geographic boundary.
Whilst the standard was developed in South Africa, we hope that this will become a competitive global standard.
