Green-e Climate Verification Process
Green-e Climate Verification consists of two main elements, the annual Verification Audit and the twice-yearly Marketing Compliance Review (MCR). The Verification Process Audit requires providers of retail Green-e Climate certified carbon offsets to complete an annual third-party verification audit of their carbon offset purchases and sales. The Marketing Compliance Review (MCR), conducted by Green-e Climate staff, ensures that sellers of certified carbon offsets are abiding by the Green-e Climate Code of Conduct and not making false or misleading statements about their certified product and have made accurate disclosures to customers in a standardized format. MCR occurs twice a year, in the Spring and Fall.
