How will topics like additionality, permanence, and risk of leakage be managed?

The biodiversity credit market benefits from decades of experience of learnings within the voluntary carbon markets as well as in biodiversity offset compliance markets. Therefore, the biodiversity credit market is able to benefit from a strong starting point in terms of designing to address these topics. Practically, these topics are being addressed by the various standards which are in development for biodiversity credits. Both the Verra Nature Framework and PlanVivo Biodiversity Standard (PV Nature) for example were recently open for a first round of public consultation and addressed each issue in turn.
