About us - our mission and strategy

Bret seeks to promote healthy, sustainable, and resilient rural economies through the carbon market, while strengthening the participation of communities in project development and decision-making. At the same time, companies, organizations, and individuals can offset their emissions and meet their climate goals.

Our mission is to support local communities across Latin America and beyond

The scattered nature of voluntary carbon markets calls for mechanisms that bring robustness to carbon removal projects, such as evaluation and monitoring processes. Aside from providing reliability and transparency, these actions will contribute to the scaling up of carbon markets over the coming years.

To ensure compliance with internal corporate climate objectives, it is necessary to assess the quality of the carbon credits f rom removalsused during the offsetting of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. These credits must meet essential requirements to ensure not only the removal of emissions, but also the generation of co-benefits that drive sustainable development.

Our strategic measures assure the high quality of credits from carbon removals throughout the purchasing process

We ensure appropriate verification of the carbon footprint through the certification of highly qualified entities. This allows planning mitigation activities and choosing the emissions to offset with the purchase of carbon credits.

The selection of offset projects are certified under international standards and guided by rigorous methodologies. This avoids double-counting, i.e., that a single GHG reduction is used more than once to demonstrate compliance with mitigation targets.

We value the use of cancellation credits in the official registry systems. These are accessible systems where the information of a carbon credit project, its status, the credits it generates, among other information, is tracked.

Our 10 principles for the creation and use of our industry leading high quality credits from carbon removals

1. Positive action for the planet

When purchasing carbon credits, stakeholder commitments must be aligned with the latest scientific consensus on safe limits for global warming. Before using offsets, stakeholders should implement solutions to mitigate emissions within their value chains.

2.  Positive action for nature

The purchase of carbon credits should be consistent with the positive restoration and renewal of nature and biodiversity.

3.  High environmental integrity

When purchasing carbon credits, the project must be registered and certified under international standards. This ensures efficient implementation and guarantees that GHG emissions are effectively absorbed, eliminated, or avoided.

4.  Generation of additional co-benefits

In addition to the generation of carbon credits, the projects must have social, environmental, or economic co-benefits.

5.  Sustained action

The purchase of carbon credits requires climate action plans from companies in order to be aligned with the net-zero emissions target, incorporating climate strategies in all their activities and processes.

6.  Environmental and social safeguards

These are a set of standards and compliance systems that guide the implementation of carbon credit projects. Safeguards ensure that conservation and restoration efforts do not have adverse social or environmental impacts and protect human rights.

7.  Equity-oriented action

Carbon credits must be aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Business activities should ensure environmental protection, support livelihoods, and the creation of healthy, inclusive, and resilient economies.

8.  Carbon credit generation time frame

Preferably, the carbon credit generation period should not exceed a limit of 5 years to ensure the integrity of the offset. A longer period may indicate credit quality issues.

9.  Transparency in actions

Stakeholders should be transparent regarding the scope, limits, and use of the carbon credits they acquire. Likewise, traded credits should be registered in a tracking system to obtain and provide information on the project.

10.  Communication of results

This should be done by companies and individuals in order to avoid greenwashing practices. This requires avoiding behaviors or activities that make people believe that the company is doing more to protect the environment than it actually does.
