New: Accelerate global net zero — make a Carbon Integrity Claim today

New VCMI guidance for corporate carbon credit claims has been released, which means companies can now make credible claims about their use of high-integrity carbon credits. A Carbon Integrity Claim means that a company is going above and beyond science-aligned emissions cuts by using high-quality carbon credits.

About VCMI

VCMI is a multi-stakeholder platform enabling high-integrity VCMs through the guidance it develops for market participants.

It works alongside stakeholders from civil society, the private sector, Indigenous Peoples, local communities, and governments, to realize the full potential of high-integrity carbon markets.

VCMI works to ensure a clear understanding of the role that carbon credits play as a mechanism to deliver carbon finance to where it is most needed, and how these can be used as part of broader net-zero transitions by companies and non-state actors (NSAs).

To avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change, global warming must be kept to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels.

VCMI is committed to this goal, achieving this through a just transition that enhances equality and sustainable development for all.

We believe that voluntary carbon markets (VCMs) play a critical role in benefiting the climate, nature, societies and economies.
