Meet the Wilder Carbon Technical Standards Board

To provide public and investor assurance that any Wilder Carbon project is being done in the most impactful way in line with best practice, we mobilised a group of independent cross-sectoral experts who have developed the Wilder Carbon Standards. This enables projects to be certified and matched to ethical buyers and investors.

The Standards published here are Version 1 November 2021. They will continue to be improved over time with the Standard Board acting as their guardians to ensure that they are being properly applied, and that they reflect international, emerging high integrity mechanisms.
