Planetary Carbon Standard (PCS)

The "Planetary Carbon Standard" (PCS) serves as the designated carbon standard for SPE, developed by a skilled and diverse technical team with ample experience in the field. PCS draws from existing carbon standards in the market, while also addressing the need for a simplified carbon standard that can be employed by all. The standard's objective is to assess, monitor, estimate, verify, and validate carbon sequestration for afforestation and reforestation projects of varying scales, from small to large, across the world. PCS distinguishes itself from other carbon standards in that it can assess all types of greenhouse gas emissions, rather than being limited to particular GHG emissions or operations specific to a particular locale. Furthermore, PCS has created methodologies for evaluating carbon-negative effects of renewable energy projects and methane-capturing waste management projects.

SPE's overarching goal is to encourage individuals from all corners of the globe to consider their carbon footprint, drive nations towards achieving "Negative carbon emissions," rather than being "Carbon Neutral," and disseminate carbon credit benefits among small-scale planters and renewable energy project developers alike. As a result, PCS is equipped to assess and validate projects that contribute towards achieving "Negative carbon emissions," thus earning the moniker "Planetary Carbon Standard."

PCS leverages cutting-edge technologies and remote sensing techniques, including satellite imagery, LiDAR, and Artificial Intelligence, to monitor projects accurately, thereby enhancing the validation and verification process while making the monitoring process convenient and accessible for project owners.

Moreover, the Government of Sri Lanka has recognized and endorsed the "Planetary Carbon Standard" (PCS) developed by SPE. The Sri Lanka Climate Fund (SLCF) has been appointed as the Independent Verification and Validation body for projects managed by SPE in Sri Lanka and abroad.
