The Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program was launched in November 2007 and is now well established as the leading global greenhouse gas (GHG) certification program in the voluntary carbon market. Our primary objective has been to bring standardization, transparency and credibility to the voluntary carbon market and other results-based mechanisms, and we continue to pioneer the establishment of frameworks that enable the development of new and innovative projects and programs that reduce GHG emissions worldwide. We are also increasingly seeing opportunities to apply our certification knowledge base to non-carbon activities.
