Measurement Protocols

The two most comprehensive measurement protocols for A/R presently in use are those for the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). The adherence to CDM protocols is a precondition for the issue of tradable certified emission reductions (CERs) under the Kyoto Protocol.

Adherence to either of these protocols may be required for certification of emission reductions in the voluntary market. For example, the Voluntary Carbon Standard (2008) accepts existing methodologies under the CDM and, similar to CDM, Joint Implementation (JI).
