Voluntary Carbon Projects

We guide organisations to achieve quality standards in Voluntary Carbon Projects.

Ensuring integrity in Voluntary Carbon Markets

In the realm of voluntary carbon markets, integrity is paramount—not just for environmental impact but also for stakeholder confidence. Guiding organisations through the complexity of selecting and adhering to carbon standards, our expertise, gained through almost 20 years of working in this space, ensures projects meet rigorous, verifiable emission reduction and sustainable development criteria.

With a deep understanding of global and local environmental contexts, we tailor projects to uphold the highest integrity and sustainability levels. Our commitment to high integrity and adherence to the Core Carbon Principles ensures that your project’s emission reductions are accurately quantified, contributing to genuine and impactful climate solutions, meeting the market expectations of quality.

How we work with you

Specialising in measurement, reporting, and verification, we extend our expertise beyond consultancy, supporting organisations at every stage of their project’s lifecycle. Our commitment is to ensure that your projects—whether newly developed, under review, or in need of auditing—are not only impactful and compliant but also achieve quality standards. We aim to streamline the complexities of the carbon market, facilitating a seamless journey that enriches our environment.

Our expertise allows us to navigate the complexities of projects through comprehensive due diligence. Our approach includes a comprehensive assessment, documenting potential project risks relating to unique considerations pertinent to the project’s operational country, standard and methodological requirements related to governance and operational elements. Our assessment extends to project-level requirements such as data, safeguards, and benefit-sharing structures. This is complemented by a financial viability analysis, covering project development costs, field measurement, monitoring, third-party validation, verification expenses.

Our team is dedicated to advising on the selection of the most suitable standard and methodologies for the project. We take the lead in crafting comprehensive measurement and monitoring plans, focusing on the quantification of emission reductions that meet the methodology and program standards. Our team specialize in project documentation that both completes the various standard templates to get you through verification as well as standard operating procedures and supporting manuals to ensure completeness and consistency in measurement and reporting. Capacity building of your team throughout the process can ensure your projects success.

EAS offers audit support, expertly steering projects through the intricate validation and verification process. By conducting detailed evaluations, we support the ongoing integrity and compliance of your project, underscoring its significant contribution to carbon reduction efforts. This meticulous process is designed to facilitate a seamless and successful assessment, reinforcing the robustness and sustainability of your environmental initiatives.

Beyond specific project phases, we are here to offer advice and insights on any aspect of VCM projects. Leveraging our vast experience and expertise, we provide strategic consultancy tailored to navigate the intricacies of the carbon market effectively. Whether you’re exploring new opportunities or seeking to enhance the value of existing projects, our team is ready to assist.

Key projects

Infinite Earth

Rimba Raya, located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, and is one of the largest REDD+ peat swamp forest projects in the world, avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions. The project provides a buffer zone between the palm oil industry and the Tanjung Puting National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth. Project activities support livelihood programmes in surrounding villages (addressing all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals) to provide education and employment. EAS engaged with this project for a number of years to efficiently and effectively achieve verification in accordance with the Voluntary Carbon Standard. Our team also enhanced their monitoring framework to more effectively monitoring the full impact of this significant conservation project.

New Zealand Carbon Farming

EAS delivered comprehensive support, beginning with advising on the most suitable methodology to ensure compliance with Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) requirements. We lead the design and development of robust measurement and monitoring plan, including quantification of emission reductions to meet the methodology and VCS Program standards. Additionally, we provided essential support and guidance to the client through their first validation and process with a third-party Verification and Validation Body (VVB), ensuring a smooth and successful evaluation.

The Nature Conservancy

Blue carbon ecosystems play a significant role in both climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions. This is evident by their recent recognition in countries Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and this increased global focus has contributed to the establishment of enabling restoration environments with opportunities in the voluntary carbon markets. EAS provided advice to the Nature Conservancy Aotearoa New Zealand (TNC) and the Ministry for the Environment (MfE) on mechanism to advance and incentivise the protection and enhancement of these vital blue carbon ecosystems. We participated in research aimed at advising on the policy, legal, data sources and market conditions necessary in Aotearoa New Zealand to establish a voluntary or regulatory blue carbon credit market.


Since 2023, EAS has supported RSM as subject matter experts in remotely sensed data analysis and modelling of biomass change under the Australian Carbon Credit Unit Scheme. Our team focuses on verifying adherence to the regulatory guidelines for a number of project types including savanna burning and human induced regeneration. Our tasks include evaluating the quality of spatial files generated from land use change classification algorithms and adherence of modelled events to specific guidelines. This process includes thorough documentation and a rigorous peer review process.
