How it works

CAD Trust Unifies Carbon Registry Data on a Single Platform Using a Common Data Model.

CAD Trust is an open-source metadata system designed to share information about carbon credits and projects across digital platforms, facilitating the future integration of multiple registry systems. It is currently in the process of connecting various carbon credit registries. The goal is to offer free public access to this information in a harmonised and user-friendly format, enabling private companies, NGOs, and governments to utilise it for benchmarking, double counting risk checking, and compliance reporting.
