WASHINGTON, DC – August 8, 2023 | Verra, the world’s leading nonprofit standards setter for climate action and sustainable development, today launched the first component of its digitalization initiative. Housed within the new Verra Project Hub, the Project Tracker will provide stakeholders who have projects listed on the Verra Registry with more visibility into the status of those projects.

“The launch of the Project Tracker is an early look at what will become a more comprehensive online tool for Verra’s stakeholders. We have heard stakeholder requests for more transparency and more regular updates, and this new tool is the first step to deliver that. The tracker is the first functionality of Verra’s far-reaching digitalization initiative, which is one of Verra’s top priorities.”

Farhan Ahmed, Verra’s Chief Program Management Officer

The Project Tracker displays the status of each project in a bar diagram, giving a visual view as the project progresses from its initial listing to registration, validation, and verification. The application is linked to Verra’s customer relationship management platform, enabling automatic data synchronization.

The Project Tracker is the first functionality of the Verra Project Hub to be rolled out. As the platform evolves, the hub’s features will expand to facilitate the online submission of new projects for review, a digital assessment of a project’s non-permanence risk, and direct interaction with project auditors. 

In the coming weeks, stakeholders with projects listed on the Verra Registry will receive an email with login credentials for their Verra Project Hub account and access to a user guide. This security feature ensures that data about each project remains accessible only to the rightful user.

As this is the initial launch of the platform, Verra encourages users to submit any technical issues or suggestions to the development team at hubsupport@verra.org. The team will continue to refine the platform as feedback is received.
