Last year, we took a side-by-side look at the benefits of verification and carbon offset registries, as well as the importance of non-verified offsets in the market. While both programs have their place in voluntary carbon markets, the amount of attention garnered by verification points to a growing appreciation for trust, transparency and information sharing across the ecosystem.
Carbon credit customers are constantly seeking educational and engaging content to determine the best portfolio for their needs, and Patch’s platform has the power to play a key role in supporting that decision-making process.
With trust and transparency at its core, Patch is excited to announce new progress in our partnership with BeZero Carbon, a global ratings agency for the voluntary carbon market that provides organizations with data, analytics and project ratings.
The BeZero Carbon Rating, now available through Patch, provides credible third-party ratings and detailed analysis on key project attributes, such as additionality, permanence, leakage and more. These insights serve as helpful guidance for carbon credit and removal purchasers across every sector, while Patch provides BeZero Carbon with a direct connection to the market via its infrastructure and relationships.
“We're delighted to partner with Patch. They are an exciting company with similar goals: to help organizations and individuals take effective, informed climate action. With Patch users making decisions powered by BeZero Carbon's ratings approach, and our users accessing Patch's products and services, we are excited to see more and more people making smarter decisions in the carbon markets through this partnership.” said Tommy Ricketts, CEO & Co-founder at BeZero Carbon
“As we provide the infrastructure for a sustainable economy, it is Patch’s responsibility to build high quality information into the core of our offering - with BeZero Carbon, we empower customers with accessible information and the data they need to build carbon offsetting programs tailored to their needs and priorities.” said Brennan Spellacy, CEO & Co-founder at Patch
