Rainforest del Ecuador Selects Validation/Verification Body

At this time, Rainforest del Ecuador is pleased to announce the selection of the
validation/verification body for certifying its Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) projects
to be registered with Verra. Verra’s Climate, Community and Biodiversity Program as well as its
Verified Carbon Standard Program, maintains strict standards and operating protocols regarding
the certification of GHG emission reduction projects, one of which requires project auditing by
independent third party experts. These third party independent certifiers must undergo review
and approval by Verra in order to operate as certifying agents, or validation/verification bodies
(known as VVBs) for Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Climate, Community and Biodiversity
(CCB) projects (see https://verra.org). Rainforest del Ecuador, after undertaking a careful
candidate selection and review process including interviews with these select auditors, has chosen
TUV NORD (https://www.tuev-nord.de/en/), a German company with an impressive record of
work around the world in the field of certification of greenhouse gas emissions reductions
projects. Rainforest del Ecuador is looking forward to its working relationship with TUV NORD and
confident of the benefits that this relationship will bring to the company, our forests, and the
communities we work with.
