The International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA) is a non-profit professional industry body hosting a membership of businesses that deliver carbon reduction and offset services. ICROA members operate globally and are managed by an independent secretariat housed within IETA. The primary aim of ICROA is to promote best practices in carbon management and offsetting to support voluntary climate mitigation efforts. ICROA keeps abreast of the latest developments within carbon management and the carbon markets to ensure its members adhere to the best possible practices in the industry.
ICROA provides consumer protection for parties wishing to voluntarily manage and offset their carbon emissions by ensuring its member companies follow and publically report against the ICROA Code of Best Practice, which provides specific requirements for the manner in which ICROA members provide their carbon footprinting, greenhouse gas reduction advice and offset services. ICROA members are 3rd party audited to assure the quality of their services.
