Climate Community and Biodiversity Standard

The Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Standards identify a project that simultaneously addresses climate change, supports local communities and smallholders, and conserve biodiversity. The CCB Standards identify land management projects that deliver net positive benefits for climate change mitigation, for local communities and for biodiversity. The CCB Standards can be applied to any land management project, including projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation or from avoided degradation of other ecosystems, and projects that remove carbon dioxide by sequestering carbon (e.g., reforestation, afforestation, re-vegetation, forest restoration, agroforestry, and sustainable agriculture) or other land management, from design through implementation and monitoring.


The CCB aims to leverage policies and markets to promote the development of forest protection, restoration, and agroforestry projects through high-quality multiple-benefit land-based carbon projects.CCB helps clients to achieve emission reductions along with conserving biodiversity and support local stakeholders.
