Social Carbon is a Standard that certifies carbon reduction projects for their contributions to sustainable development. The standard includes six aspects of project sustainability and is known as the Social Carbon hexagon. Each component of hexagon includes carbon and biodiversity as well as social, financial, human, and natural components. The standard uses a set of analytical tools that assess the social, environmental, and economic conditions of communities affected by emission reduction projects and measures sustainable development contributions through continuous monitoring. Another key element is the active participation of local communities to ensure stable and beneficial outcomes.
