Conservation International is committed to providing the greatest value to our supporters and donors in our carbon projects.
CI guarantees the quality and validity of our forest carbon projects and ensures that benefits are generated for biodiversity conservation and communities by working in accordance with the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standards. CCB standards are voluntary standards to help project developers design land management projects that simultaneously minimize the risk of climate change, conserve biodiversity, and provide economic and social benefits to local communities
