In voluntary carbon markets, activities that reduce Green House Gasses produce Verified Emission Reductions (VERs), which can be sold to companies or individuals wishing to voluntarily reduce their impact on the environment. One VER is the equivalent of one ton CO2 reduced. Purchasing VERs can be an effective means of offsetting the part of a company’s carbon footprint where it is not in a position to reduce its emissions directly
In order to ensure that buyers are purchasing a real emission reduction, VERs must be calculated according to a VER Standard. VERs are generated by small scale projects, which are assessed and verified by third party organisations rather than through the UNFCCC. There are several VER Standards currently being used throughout the world and each sets out different rules governing the project types that are acceptable and way emission reductions are measured.
