Central Issuer for
the I-REC Standard
We are the Central Issuer and Centre of Excellence for I-RECs (International Renewable Energy Certificates) and accredited by the I-REC Standard. GCC verifies and approves the registration of production facilities and requests for certificates for their output.
The global I-REC registry operated by Evident provides end-users with a uniquely verifiable confirmation of ownership as the single register for I-REC certificates.
I-REC certification meets RE100 and CDP requirements in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Scope 2 Guidance. RE100 companies commit to using 100% renewable electricity for their global operations by either producing or purchasing from renewable sources. CDP helps companies measure and report their environmental impact, set goals, and engage stakeholders.
GCC is the Central Issuer for C-Capsule, which is a standard for durable Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), and certifies carbon that has been durably removed from the atmospheric cycle.
C-Capsule operates an open framework and clear governance structure to provide trustworthy, universal access to the Voluntary Carbon Market for all actors. C-Capsule offers a market-based solution to scale up supply by accelerating access to finance for high-quality, durable CDR.
