Aligning with best practice market guidance
It is well recognized that a high-integrity VCM is key if we are to accelerate a Just Transition to 1.5°C and there is a need to move beyond business-as-usual towards trust in the quality of the supply of credits that is coming to market. Integrity Global Partners (IGP) follows the latest guidance on high quality accounting, such as the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Market Core Carbon Principles, the Tropical Forest Integrity Guide, and rating agencies— Sylvera and Calyx Global— to ensure the credits we are bringing to market are of the highest quality and integrity.
Science Based Technical Design
IGP fully supports the planned updates to Verra’s methodologies that include the use of risk-allocated baselines, shortening of baselines from 10 to 6 years, and is committed to maximum transparency in its project designs, using best available technology for near-real time monitoring. We also align with best practice scientific guidance on reforestation and other activity types to ensure highest integrity and effective removal project design and execution.
Equitable and fair revenue share models
IGP ensures complete transparency and fairness in all the financial transactions we facilitate and ensures that local communities thrive as project implementers, beneficiaries and partners. We partner with mission- aligned capital providers that aim to provide upfront financing at reasonable risk adjusted returns, to create new supply of NBS carbon credits. Through their own networks in the sector and sourcing channels, a DevCo can bring an immediate executable near-term pipeline of project opportunities.
Partnerships and holistic approach
Our Hub Model is to work in close collaboration with the best strategic partners around the world. These include state-of-the-art technology providers for measuring and monitoring emission reductions and removals, third-party carbon and biodiversity technical accounting firms, and multi-jurisdictional and local execution partners–including NGO, private sector, governments, indigenous and local communities–that are on-the-ground protecting and restoring ecosystems.
Maximizing core benefits and SDG impacts
The success of nature-based solutions and community projects depends on ensuring these projects deliver more than carbon outcomes. Community and ecosystem benefits like biodiversity are core to IGP’s strategy. We have a commitment to scientific evidence-based quantification, reporting and verification and collaborate with local communities and the scientific community to maximize locally-appropriate SDG impacts.
We are aligned with market best practice impact KPIs such as the UNEP-WCMC KPIs. A key part of IGP’s commitment in all our projects is to ensure that the needs of women are front and center in the projects we help to design, finance and execute.
Robust ESG policy and risk management
IGP applies a robust ESG policy and screening tool to ensure the highest environmental, social and governance safeguards in line with IFC performance standards and. We also ensure safeguards are upheld that ensure free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) and respect legal and customary rights
