The Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity Initiative is developing a Claims Code of Practice to guide credible, voluntary use of carbon credits and associated claims.

The Claims Code of Practice (CoP) will guide companies to make transparent and credible claims about their progress towards a longer-term Net-Zero commitment.

The VCMI Claims Code of Practice is now being developed through a balanced, transparent, and inclusive stakeholder process. The VCMI is proactively engaging with interested organizations, providing a range of options to engage with the process, including:

  • Targeted input on initial thinking with >60 participants from a broad spectrum of business, country, NGO, Indigenous Peoples and Local communities stakeholders on early drafts of the CoP (March – April 2022)
  • A road-test with corporate participants (June – August 2022)
  • Deep dives with Non-State Actors (NSAs) (June – August 2022)
  • Public consultation (June – Aug 2022)

Provide feedback with the VCMI Claims Code of Practice public consultation feedback form here.

Organizations and businesses are also invited to sign up for the VCMI Claims Code of Practice road-test here.
