Founded in 2008, ICROA is an international non-profit organisation made up of the leading carbon reduction and offset providers in the voluntary carbon market. The ICROA secretariat is managed within the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA).
The primary role of ICROA is to promote best practice in the market through adherence to the ICROA Code of Best Practice. The Code provides consumer protection to businesses wishing to get the value of carbon offsetting as part of their broader carbon management strategies. ICROA members are third party audited to ensure their compliance with the Code.
ICROA also uses its knowledge and experience to play an important role in actively shaping the future of the voluntary carbon market. Its Secretariat, Executive Leadership, and members are available to speak at conferences or to the press.
