Criteria for High-Quality Carbon Dioxide Removal


March, 2024

The Criteria for High-Quality Carbon Dioxide Removal provides a set of science-based benchmarks for the development of carbon dioxide removal projects that can be used by stakeholders across the industry to drive just, effective climate action at scale.

Developed through a collaboration between Microsoft and Carbon Direct, the 2023 edition of the Criteria incorporates both the latest science and equity considerations to advance the common definitions for high-quality carbon dioxide removal solutions and expand on the practical applications of environmental justice.
