The SD VISta Label

SD VISta-verified projects that also issue social or environmental units under another Verra-approved program must apply an SD VISta label to those units. The SD VISta label is a permanent marker added to a unit’s unique registry identification code that allows buyers to identify units from a project that has met the Sustainable Development Verified Impact Standard.

The Verified Carbon Standard is the only program currently approved to apply SD VISta labels. Programs can request approval to use the SD VISta label on its units by contacting Verra.
