UK Land Carbon Registry

The UK Land Carbon Registry is the database that stores and publicly displays data about the status of Woodland Carbon Code and Peatland Code projects and ownership and use of carbon units.  Managed by IHS Markit, it records transactions and provides a public and transparent picture of UK-based Woodland and Peatland Carbon Units.  All Projects and Carbon Units must be recorded on the UK Land Carbon Registry.
