NEW METHODOLOGY  Tech-based carbon removal and storage in recycled concrete  Currently, demolished concrete is crushed into concrete aggregate before it is either used as a substitute to gravel and sand or sent to landfill. This new tech-based carbon removal methodology, developed by neustark, facilitates CO2 sequestration in demolished concrete using either direct or indirect mineral carbonation before it enters downstream processes. ...

 NEW METHODOLOGY  Catalysing nature-based sequestration from industrial waste  This new Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) Activity Module developed by Soilfood Oy allows European-based pulp and paper manufacturing to reduce waste and remove carbon from the atmosphere by recycling the mill sludge from industrial operations. What would otherwise go to landfill or be incinerated is used to enhance soil organic matter in agriculture systems, which beyond biologic sequestration, helps improve soil quality, increase soil PH, and provide nutrients for better productivity. ...

 REQUIREMENTS  Updated to ensure consistency in process and improve response times to deviation requests The requirements, procedures and template for the deviation process have been updated to clarify the process and speed up responses to deviation requests. The path for requesting reconsideration of a deviation decisions has also been clarified. Related Documents Deviation Request Form v.5.0 3.05.2022 ...

 REQUIREMENTS  Stakeholder consultation process streamlined to make requirements more user friendly for project developers and VVBs  Stakeholder consultations and meaningful engagement with those who may be affected by a project is an essential element for ensuring project success.  Key updates include: More cohesive requirements for Programme of Activities (PoAs) to reduce time spent navigating multiple documents Reduction in the mandatory duration of Stakeholder Feedback Round from 60 to 30 days New requirements for engagement of an expert stakeholder Revision to the submission timeline for stakeholder consultation reports We have also added a new case study to the stakeholder consultation guidelines to showcase how the requirements work in practice and updated the relevant related resources.

 REQUIREMENTS  More clarity on requirements for PoAs, scope expansion into Land Use & Forestry projects and simplifications to PoA project cycle procedures   Programme of Activities enable replicable projects access to carbon finance through coordinated implementation, supporting high-impact projects that may have previously struggled to finance activities due to project size and associated transaction costs. Key updates include: New PoA hierarchy defined and corresponding rules and requirements established Scope expansion to include requirements and procedures for Land Use and Forestry projects Simplifications to the PoA project certification cycle and inclusion of new PoAs ...

 REQUIREMENTS  A step closer to supporting the creation and transfer of Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs) under Article 6.  The GHG Emissions Reduction and Sequestration Product Requirementswhich provides the specific rules for projects seeking issuance of products (i.e., GS VERs, GS CERs and PERs) has been updated to: Incorporate latest understanding and developments within the global climate policy regime, following the adoption of Article 6 guidance Introduce further clarity on key aspects related to GHG specific product requirements Promote consistency between various standard documents These updates have been made based on outputs from COP26, feedback from multiple consultations, and participation within working groups including the Voluntary Carbon Market Integrity Initiative and our own Working Group on Article 6 set up to ensure environmental integrity and that carbon finance continues to flow where it has the greatest impact. Key changes include: Revised double counting requirements to incorporate new procedures to manage VERs authorised for use under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement Buffer requirements for non-carbon sequestration projects and clarification on issuance ...
