In March 2020, the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program was accepted as one of six programs eligible to supply emission reduction units for compliance under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). CORSIA was implemented to help the aviation industry achieve its goal for carbon-neutral growth post-2020.
Verra has developed several resources to help stakeholders navigate this new opportunity.
- Webinars: We held two webinars to review the decision of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council and invited our stakeholders to bring their questions about this decision to the table. Click here for the original announcement of the VCS Program’s acceptance. The recording of the English webinar can be found here; the recording of the Spanish webinar can be found here.
- VCU Eligibility Guidance: The purpose of this guidance is to clearly identify which VCUs are eligible for use in CORSIA and to highlight how such eligible VCUs will be identified on the Verra Registry.
- CORSIA FAQs: On this page, we have captured the most commonly asked questions from our webinars and from other exchanges, along with our responses and Verra’s resubmitted application.
