dynaCERT Inc. (TSX: DYA) (OTCQX: DYFSF) (FRA: DMJ) (" dynaCERT " or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has been notified of the recent progress update in dynaCERT's application under Verra's Verified Carbon Program (the "VCS Program").
Under the VCS Program, auditors known as validation and verification bodies (VVBs) are tasked with assessing projects against the VCS Program rules and the requirements of the applied methodology.
Following the recently announced publication of dynaCERT's proposed methodology in respect of its Carbon Credit certification (See Press Release dated October 18, 2021), Verra has indicated to dynaCERT that the next step will be its VVB audit. Verra is submitting a request for proposals to their list of auditors this week.
All VCS projects are subject to desk and field audits by both qualified independent third parties and Verra staff to ensure that standards are met and methodologies are properly applied.
VVBs are qualified, independent third parties which are approved by VCS to perform validation and verification. This independent assessment process is critical to ensuring the integrity of the projects registered with the VCS Program.
Currently, more than twenty VVBs located across five continents are approved under the VCS Program. VVBs are accredited to work in specific sectoral scopes, meaning their expertise is geared directly toward the types of projects they audit.
VVBs are eligible to provide validation and verification services under the VCS Program if they have signed the required agreement with VCS and are accredited by a VCS-recognized accreditation body.
The VCS Program:
The VCS Program is the world's most widely used voluntary GHG program. Nearly 1,700 certified VCS projects have collectively reduced or removed more than 630 million tonnes of carbon and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere.
Jean-Pierre Colin, Executive Vice President & Director of dynaCERT, stated, "In Canada and worldwide, Carbon Credits and Carbon Offsets play a paramount role in advancing a cleaner planet. dynaCERT's commitment to working with Verra to achieve global Greenhouse Gas reductions aligns with the stated objectives of the United Nations which were approved by over 160 Nations globally in Article 6 of the Paris Agreement. Our GHG reduction initiatives also support dynaCERT's target markets such as mining, oil and gas, transportation, utilities, municipalities, sovereign governments, construction, marine, rail, power generation, building, farming, heavy equipment industries and many others."
Verra is a global leader helping to tackle the world's most intractable environmental and social challenges by developing and managing standards that help the private sector, countries, and civil society achieve ambitious sustainable development and climate action goals.
