Global carbon ratings agency BeZero Carbon has partnered with Brazilian research institutions in an aim to improve carbon estimates in the Amazon rainforest. The collaborations with Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE) and the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (IPAM) strive to foster transparency in the Voluntary Carbon Market (VCM).

The partnership between BeZero and INPE’s Earth Observation and Geoinformatics Division aims to enhance carbon estimates, blending ground-based measurements with cutting-edge aerial LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) and satellite data. By incorporating these precise findings into its ratings, BeZero intends to facilitate a clearer understanding of the carbon dynamics in the Amazon, ultimately serving as a reference point for market participants assessing climate commitments.

BeZero’s cooperation with IPAM, an organization that conducts environmental research in the Amazon, aims to support Brazilian postgraduate scholars who specialize in carbon research. With more carbon credit projects associated with deforestation avoidance than any other nation, Brazil plays a pivotal role in the carbon credit landscape. BeZero’s collaborations could prove instrumental in increasing the transparency of the VCM, ensuring that projects align with their stated environmental goals.

Dr. Camila Silva, Remote Sensing Ecologist at BeZero Carbon and Researcher at IPAM, emphasized the necessity for transparency in the Voluntary Carbon Market’s expansion. The partnerships, she noted, facilitate more accurate carbon mapping and monitoring, essential for tracking human-induced impacts on forest carbon stocks.
