Accrediting Best Practice in Carbon Offsetting
Who we are
The International Carbon Reduction and Offsetting Accreditation (ICROA) is a leading industry Accreditation Programme committed to enhancing integrity in the voluntary carbon market in support of the Paris Agreement Goals.
Our mission is to enable climate leadership of corporates and governments by developing and advancing best practices in emissions reductions and carbon offsetting ahead of and beyond regulation.
ICROA Accreditation Programme
Based on the ICROA Code of Best Practice, the Accreditation Programme certifies best practice in GHG emissions reduction and offsetting through the use of high-quality carbon credits. The Programme is open to all organisations that offer carbon credits as well as emissions reduction and offsetting services. ICROA is a non-profit initiative housed within the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA).
ICROA Code of
The ICROA Code of Best Practice aims to define international best practice for offset-inclusive carbon management and represents the minimum requirements that all ICROA Accredited organisations must meet.
ICROA provides a Standards Endorsement procedure to assess the rigour of Standards for inclusion in the Code of Practice. The Endorsement ensures that the Standards operate with high integrity including good governance, open access as well as robust validation and verification of carbon projects.
