The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) and Green-e have launched Green-e Climate, a certification program for greenhouse gas emission reductions sold on the voluntary market.

According to CRS, the market for carbon offsets is growing fast, and the new program will help consumers make informed choices between different offset products without having to investigate them individually. The Green-e Climate Certified logo on a retail offset means it has undergone a rigorous verification process that guarantees the projects it sources from meet standards for permanence, additionality and transparency, the company says.

Green-e Climate is the first verification program of its kind and is expected to begin certifying offsets by March.
