The world's leading voluntary GHG program

Registry System

Verra currently uses a multi-registry system comprised of two service providers, APX and IHS Markit, and a central project database.

In early 2020, Verra will transition from this multi-registry system to a single registry administered directly by Verra.

Until the transition is complete, APX and IHS Markit will continue to work directly with account holders in the management of accounts, submission and maintenance of project information, issuance of VCUs and CCB labels, and the invoicing of registry and program fees. Once the new Verra Registry is in place, all of these functions will be managed directly by Verra. For the time being, parties interested in opening accounts should contact the existing registry operators (APX and IHS Markit) directly.

Verra Project Database

The Verra project database provides the central repository for all information and documentation relating to projects using Verra programs. The Verra project database provides full transparency on project and program documentation, together with information on project and jurisdictional proponents, VCU issuance and retirement, the AFOLU pooled buffer account and the jurisdictional pooled buffer account.
