Towards a climate positive future

Ecosystem partners advising on and investing in ONCRA’s development

The accounting framework for creating carbon credits with nature-based solutions.

Use established frameworks and methods, UN rules and IPCC science, stating that emission reduction alone is not sufficient and carbon removal is necessary.

ONCRA uses empirical data and scientific methods to account true carbon removal, offering reputation safe credits for the world’s best buyers.

Expanding the carbon removal sector with a bank, regional governments and removers in seaweed, bamboo, agroforestry, rock weathering and more.

ONCRA stands for Open Natural Carbon Removal Accounting. ONCRA is a framework for carbon removal accounting, to create carbon removal credits based on scientific data-driven empirical crediting methodologies. ONCRA was developed to deliver rigor and support innovation, by carbon removers and with partners like ASN Bank and the regional governments of Zuid-Holland and Gelderland in the Netherlands.

“In addition to Land Stored Carbon, ONCRA uses sectoral accounting protocols for Construction, Ocean and Rock Stored Carbon to push innovation in the emerging carbon removal sector.”

ONCRA Carbon Removal Credits are not just carbon credits. As a result of our holistic approach we perform a ‘doughnut check’ on the projects, evaluating benefits like more biodiversity, clean water and meaningful jobs. ONCRA credits represent projects with ‘multi-potent’ benefits, ticking several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Read more about Doughnut Economics.

We advise our credits for buyers adhering to the Oxford Offsetting Principles. The Oxford Offsetting Principles were established to reduce risks associated with existing offsetting schemes.
