Companies that surpass their carbon reduction targets will be rewarded with carbon credit certificates, certifying the amount of CO2 equivalent they've reduced or avoided.

Verifiers are responsible for checking and confirming the amount of CO2 equivalent reduced or avoided by companies, ensuring the integrity of the carbon credit system.

Yes, global applications for enlisting verifiers for the scheme are being explored.
 

How will the verifiers be selected or enlisted?
