Return to insights You are reading: A Milestone for South Africa
WeAct is pleased to announce that our South Africa Grassland Management Project (VCS2710) has passed Verra’s rigorous project validation process and is now registered under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).




This major project milestone represents significant work undertaken over the last few years by our project team in partnership with 22 local landholders and environmental NGOs to design, test and implement the project. Working through the detailed review process with Verra has ensured the project meets the highest integrity standards expected by global carbon markets.


“This is the sixth project registered under VCS method VM0026 globally, and the first project of its type registered in South Africa”, says Vivek Dugar, Director at WeAct.


“We are proud to be supporting real climate action in South Africa, and look forward to working with our partners to show the transformational power of carbon finance”.


The project will now move into the next phase of development, which will involve working through the VCS verification process. We expect to receive our first issuance of Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) in Q1 2025.


About the Project

We’re working with local landowners to restore more than 90,000 hectares of native grassland in South Africa. Over the next 30 years, we aim to sequester carbon emissions in the landscape by implementing a range of sustainable grazing and fire management practices, enabling degraded vegetation and soils to return to better health, and store more carbon in the soils and perennial grasses.
