Digital verification of CO2 reduction from material recycling

KWOTA Standard is the first global standard for digital verification of CO₂ reduction from material recycling and increased circularity in the voluntary carbon market. KWOTA Standard, procedures and methodologies reflect the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) principles for life cycle assessment (LCA) and greenhouse gas emissions quantification.

51% of CO₂ emissions are related to material production

Did you know replacing 1 tonne of raw materials with 1 tonne of recyclable materials would reduce CO₂ emissions by up to 60%? We do that by verifying and standardising the total amount of recyclable materials used during production over the use of virgin materials.
