White paper 2023 "From crisis to confidence: Rethinking integrity in the voluntary carbon market"
The voluntary carbon market needs an overhaul now to be fit to serve the long-term demand for high-quality carbon credits for meeting corporate net-zero targets. The market's future depends on how successful integrity initiatives and stakeholders within the VCM can tackle the current challenges.
In this white paper, we will discuss why 90% of project fail Compensate Foundation's evaluation criteria, the systemic flaws in the market and efforts to improve integrity.
Download our white paper to understand the ever-evolving landscape related to quality assurance, claims, regulations, and the imminent risks of greenwashing associated with current offsetting practices.

How to make credible and transparent net zero or carbon neutrality claims?
Only 10% of screened carbon projects accredited by international standards, such as Gold Standard and Verra, pass our scientific evaluation criteria and can demonstrate a true climate impact.
A portfolio approach
We maximize your climate impact and mitigate risks by managing a dynamic and diverse portfolio of carbon projects with different methods around the globe.
Our in-built overcompensation mechanism mitigates risks related to carbon projects and uncertainties in carbon footprint calculations, providing a more robust compensation claim compared to standard carbon credits.
Impact beyond climate
We operate exclusively with carbon projects with a net positive impact on the environment, biodiversity, social justice, and human rights. Our projects support all the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
