BeZero’s Geospatial and Earth Observation team have tirelessly built the world’s most comprehensive dataset of independently audited project boundary data, to help our users see the trees from the wood.
Geospatial and Earth Observation analysis informs all nature based ratings. BeZero Carbon Markets platform users can access maps for over 100 nature based projects, with project areas, reference regions, leakage belts, as well as Key Biodiversity Areas and Protected Areas provided by IBAT.
The Voluntary Carbon Market provides a means for companies, countries and consumers to invest in the planet by contributing to conservation and restoration projects
However, it’s hard to act with confidence in the market if you don’t even know where the projects are
BeZero’s Geospatial and Earth Observation team have corrected and rebuilt project boundary data for over 100 Nature Based projects, the world’s largest audited dataset for project boundary data
Geospatial data and Earth Observation techniques inform our ratings coverage of over 100 nature based projects, which make up 100% of AA ratings and 64% of A ratings of more than 300 project ratings on our platform
The team looks at change detection, natural hazards, statistical controls and carbon stocks, with analysis particularly relevant to additionality, over-crediting, non-permanence and leakage risk.
Users of the BeZero Carbon Markets platform can find interactive map with Project Areas, Reference regions and Leakage Belts for over 100 nature based projects
Through partnership with the International Biodiversity Assessment Tool Alliance (IBAT), users can also see Key Biodiversity Areas and the World Database on Protected Areas
