VOCAL: French Low-Carbon Certification is out !.

The "Low Carbon Certification" has been published today in the French Journal Officiel by the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition!

We are pleased to announce that the Low Carbon Certification has been published today in the Official Journal by the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition!

This great achievement is the result of many years of work with a large number of partners!

This Certification is indeed the culmination of the reflections and results of the VOCAL project, conducted in close collaboration with the Ministry of Ecological and Solidarity Transition.

We would like to thank all of you who have actively contributed to advancing this project and collectively providing us with a carbon certification framework for agricultural projects.

Starting next year, we will be able to mobilize to bring out many projects in the territories.

 

Abstract from the Decree

Article 1:

It is created a label entitled "Label Bas-Carbone".

This label can be awarded to projects that reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, including by greenhouse gas sequestration, which take place on French territory.

Projects that benefit from the label can be recognized for the quantities of greenhouse gases that they have helped to avoid or have sequestered. These quantities are referred to as "emission reductions".

The label guarantees the quality and transparency of these emission reductions.
