How we operate

About the ART/TREES Standard

ART (Architecture for Redd+Standards) is an independent organization that creates the rules under which carbon credits are issued. ART is governed by an independent Board of Directors, the members of which represent a diverse group of objective, globally recognized experts

TREES is the first purely jurisdictional carbon credit standard, created by ART. It ensures that deforestation reductions are more likely to be permanent.

We only sell credits issued under the TREES standard.

TREES sets a new benchmark for uncompromising environmental and social integrity, and reflects the true value and cost of protecting forests.

It incorporates an innovative, ever-tightening baseline mechanic, which encourages forest nations to continually improve forest protection in their countries, thereby creating a credible pathway to zero deforestation. It ensures that deforestation reductions are more likely to be permanent, that UNFCCC-aligned social and environmental safeguards are in place, and that there is no double counting of results.

“Avoided deforestation is the most powerful thing you can do, relative to nature-based climate solutions.”
