Watershed experts vet projects against six key considerations:
Is carbon removed from the atmosphere that would not have been removed without this purchase?
Can we be sure the project is removing as much carbon as it claims?
How long will the removed carbon stay out of the atmosphere?
What is the risk of displacing activities that shift emissions from the project to another site?
How meaningful is the purchase in advancing research and development?
Other than the carbon removed, what is the impact of the project?
