Climate Action Reserve (CAR)

The Climate Action Reserve (CAR) is the premier North American GHG registry. Its published protocols are used by the California Cap-and-Trade program. 

The scope of CAR’s projects used for carbon trade spread across the U.S. and Mexico, and include livestock compliance, forestry management, landfill compliance, and grassland compliance. 

What sets it apart from other standards

CAR protocols are used by the California Air Resource Board and their administration of the California Cap-and-Trade program.
