Brinkman Climate Helps Link BC Carbon Market With the World: Adapting the BC Forest Carbon Offset Protocol.
Brinkman Climate helps link BC carbon market with the world: Adapting the BC Forest Carbon Offset Protocol for use under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) methodology, VM 0034.
Over the past three years Brinkman Climate’s Robert Seaton has worked quietly with British Columbia’s Climate Action Secretariat to adapt and rewrite BC’s Forest Carbon Offset Protocol (FCOP) carbon standard so that it is compliant with a common VCS, a common standard used internationally in the voluntary carbon market. BC’s FCOP can now be recognized internationally and credits created using this standard can be traded more widely.
This carbon methodology can now also be more easily adopted by other jurisdictions, which will accelerate the flow of investment into forest health made possible by valuing living forests and stored carbon.
