Welcome to Verra’s May Newsletter!
We are proud to share that the Natural Climate Solutions Alliance (NCSA) has designated six Verra projects as “Lighthouses” <>, so named because they “shine a light” on the potential of investments in nature.
Also, we recently launched a Public Consultation on Projected Carbon Units <> and welcome your feedback.
Several Verra team members will be participating in this year’s Innovate4Climate <> conference and the European Climate Summit <> later this month.
