Report: Strengthening MRV standards for greenhouse gas removals to improve climate change governance

Leo Mercer & Josh Burke; Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment

This report seeks to identify the factors underpinning the monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas removal (GGR) across the spectrum of biological, chemical and geochemical techniques, and the risks associated with GGR-specific MRV. It provides recommendations for policymakers to reduce the complexity and ensure the industry continues to innovate with high levels of integrity.
