Certification of afforestation and reforestation projects under Joint Implementation / Clean Development Mechanism and other voluntary standards

As a result of climate change and the challenge it represents, sustainable management of forests is becoming ever more important. Forests recover carbon emissions, improve the regional climate and play a vital role in biodiversity. Reforestation and forest protection can also play a part in fulfilling the requirements of emission trading.

The flexible climate protection instruments Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI) were established under the Kyoto Protocol for this purpose.

TÜV NORD CERT is accredited for the validation, verification and certification of JI/CDM projects based on the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).  Under the scope “afforestation and reforestation”. We can provide certification under different voluntary carbon standards, used by companies to acquire credits to neutralise their carbon footprint.  Or, to demonstrate the sustainability of corporate operations or for a project.
