Digital Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (DMRV) Working Group

Verra’s DMRV Working Group (WG) is a multi-stakeholder group that explores key barriers and opportunities for using digital technology innovations in measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) for voluntary carbon markets and the VCS Program.

The DMRV WG will help Verra identify important existing or emerging DMRV technology innovations, tools, and processes that have the potential to transform MRV for voluntary carbon market standards by increasing accuracy, efficiency, and impact of carbon projects.

The WG will discuss key themes around DMRV such as the development and use of digital projects and methodologies, guidance for and certification of DMRV platforms, and governance and oversight of a DMRV ecosystem with a particular focus on how to implement DMRV innovations within the VCS Program.

The Working Group was formed in March 2022 and will inform priority actions that Verra and partners can take within the following 12-18 months to develop guidance and processes for implementing DMRV across VCS projects. The Working Group will periodically share outputs and updates with a broader consultative group, which is comprised of additional stakeholders who can provide written feedback.
