Verra invites digital measurement, reporting, and verification (DMRV) technology experts to participate in a pilot program that will develop and test the implementation of DMRV technology tools and platforms in the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program.
The DMRV pilot program will help Verra gain a better understanding of the benefits and risks of using DMRV platforms and draft guidance for the broader development, use, and certification of DMRV platforms in our programs. It will also create a pathway for certifying projects in a more automated way. The pilot program will test various DMRV tools and platforms using existing methodologies and projects. Based on the learnings of the pilot program, Verra will create initial processes and draft guidance for how DMRV platforms should be built and certified to maximize benefits while minimizing risks.
Details about the pilot program’s scope, criteria for participation, and application instructions can be found in the Request for Expressions of Interest. Interested stakeholders should apply by 10 February 2023.
The DMRV pilot program will begin in Q1 2023 and initially run for one year, with the possibility of being extended.
