Product Differentiation

Methodologies available for calculating GHG emissions offset by projects including forestry are: the GHG Protocol of the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the ISO

Standard 14064, the California Climate Change Registry, the CarbonFix standard Green-e Climate and Social Carbon. These methodologies were developed to support any voluntary program or seller. Where validations of methodology and GHG reduction calculations are made by a third party according to the above sets of standards, then the product is traded as a verified emission reduction (VER) rather than just an emission reduction (ER). However, VERs are not tradable in the official exchanges set up under the Kyoto Protocol, or by governments, such as the Automated Power Exchange in California and the Greenhouse Friendly scheme in Australia.
