Global ratings for the Voluntary Carbon Market

The Voluntary Carbon Market is struggling to price and manage risk. Scaling climate action requires a new toolkit.

BeZero Carbon Ratings is a publicly available, risk-based framework for assessing carbon efficacy. We rate qualifying carbon credits in all sectors.

The BeZero Carbon Rating (BCR) of voluntary carbon credits represent BeZero Carbon’s current opinion on the likelihood that a given credit achieves a tonne of CO2e avoided or removed.

Serving the whole climate value chain

BeZero’s ratings and research tools support buyers, intermediaries, investors, and carbon project developers. Our team combines climatic and earth sciences, sell-side financial research, earth observation, machine learning, data and technology, engineering, and public policy.
