Welcome to the 1t.org US Chapter Resource Library. The Resource Library is intended to serve as a clearinghouse of tools, research, and articles to support US Chapter members in pledge implementation and collaboration in working groups, delivered in an easily accessible and consolidated library.
Carbon credits have emerged as a powerful tool to fund forest conservation and restoration, with more than 150 million forestry credits issued in 2021 and in excess of $500 million in revenue generated by these projects just this year. The backbone of this funding mechanism is a system of monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) that seeks to precisely quantify, measure, and monitor carbon sequestered and stored by these projects. This report will examine the challenges and opportunities in the existing MRV landscape and highlight technologies, technology providers, and market leaders who are working to increase efficiency and rigor in the MRV process.
The Restor Tool, launched in 2021 by the Crowther Lab with the goal of increasing transparency and knowledge sharing across global restoration projects.
This report, written by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with McKinsey & Company, addresses the role of natural climate solutions in corporate net zero commitments, as well as the role of natural climate solutions in COVID-19 economic recovery plans. The report finds that the demand for natural climate solutions as a component of corporate net zero commitments is increasing, and that avoided deforestation, reforestation, and peatland restorations can deliver significant emissions abatement over the next decade.
