Enabling a sustainable future. Together.

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.

PRINCIPLES

Accessibility

Everyone has a right to participate in sustainable carbon projects and the regeneration of the planet. We make it easy for communities and individuals, without a technical background, to register carbon projects under approved methodologies.

Affordability

Our aim has been to cut the cost of carbon project development by at least a factor of 10. In order to do this we encourage the use of cutting-edge technologies in the audit process and open source existing methodologies.

Flexibility

A challenge many carbon projects face is rigidity in their methodologies, often not taking into account how fast technology and innovation happen in this space. We have a more flexible approach without compromising on the integrity.

UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE STANDARD

Component Methodologies

Build a carbon project that suits you and your needs with an approved combination of components.

Distributed Ledger and IoT

Such technologies make it possible to include smart contracts and the measuring of carbon projects with multiple, everyday devices.

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.
