  • The intent of these comments is to introduce CRS as an interested party; to describe the services that we provide for the voluntary over‐the‐counter (OTC) carbon offset market through our Green‐e Climate certification and consumer‐protection program; to briefly explain our position that the current structure and existing oversight mechanisms in the voluntary carbon offset market are, at this stage, appropriate and adequate to ensure protection of market participants and the public; and finally to offer ourselves and our organization as a valuable resource for the interagency working group and its member agencies in matters regarding carbon and other environmental commodity markets.
