Carbon markets enable companies, governments, and other actors to offset their emissions by buying carbon credits. Key to the supply of accurate and high-quality carbon credits is a thorough and independent assessment of the implementation of a project’s activities, as well as reported and claimed GHG emission reductions or removals. This should be done through independent verification against a specific set of rules set under a voluntary carbon standard. 
Technology transforms the verification process, reducing costs, time, and complexity, while increasing the quality of output. This White Paper looks at the implications of digitalization for the verification of GHG emission reductions or removals, presenting two promising blueprints for digital verification approaches.
