Under Development

VM0042, v2.0 quantifies the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions and soil organic carbon (SOC) removals resulting from the adoption of improved agricultural land management (ALM) practices.
The proposed minor revision to VM0042 enables project proponents to differentiate between Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) based on whether they are GHG emission reductions or carbon dioxide removals.
This minor revision will also incorporate corrections and clarifications that were issued on 25 January 2024.
