GORD’s spinout Global Carbon Council (GCC) is MENA region’s first voluntary carbon market with international reach. It facilitates global stakeholders in implementing climate actions through a voluntary carbon offsetting program.
The overall purpose of GCC is to contribute to achieve Paris Agreement objective of limiting global warming to 1.5°C by developing relevant standards and framework for voluntary carbon markets to catalyze, enhance and leverage climate change mitigation finance globally and especially for MENA region.
In the Global South, GCC is the only international program fully accredited by ICAO’s CORSIA. GCC is also accredited by ICROA.
