Roughly thirty percent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are caused by forest destruction and poor agricultural practices. Boosting carbon sequestration in the
Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector is an effective approach to reduce and remove emissions.

Leading the FOL Sector

VCS leads the way in developing frameworks to unlock the carbon reduction power of projects. The Verified Carbon Standard was among
the first global standards to develop robust requirements for crediting AFOLU projects, notably
projects that Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD).
All requirements have been developed in collaboration with the Steering
Committee and other working groups of leading international forest and agriculture
experts. In just a few short years, has become the most widely used standard in the sector.
