The science is clear. We urgently need to reduce and remove emissions.

Scaling high-quality carbon removal plays a critical role in the net-zero transition. Yet, even well-intentioned carbon removal buyers often lack in-house resources to engage in the voluntary carbon markets with confidence due to the limited availability of high-quality credits. Many are deterred by the risk of greenwashing and the high cost of entry associated with carbon removals. To address these challenges, Carbon Direct helps our clients by understanding quality, securing the best credits, and navigating the market’s complexities.

Defining quality for high-quality carbon removal

Quality of carbon removal helps ensure real climate impact, limits risks and supports co-benefits for local communities. However, the industry lacks best practices and quality standards. 

That’s why we created the Criteria for High-Quality Carbon Dioxide Removal in collaboration with Microsoft. By applying these principles in our multi-stage review process, we give our clients access to the highest quality carbon removal solutions on the market.
