What is the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)?

The Plan Vivo Carbon Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) is an independent body of technical experts that advises the Plan Vivo Foundation on technical matters to ensure that the carbon programmes managed by the Plan Vivo Foundation reflect the aims of the Foundation and the interests of Plan Vivo stakeholders. The TAC is being expanded in response to the growing demand for certification of new projects and methodologies. 

TAC Members provide up to two days per year of input to TAC activities without payment. Any additional input is at the discretion of the TAC member and may be subject to remuneration at an agreed rate.

About Plan Vivo Foundation

The Plan Vivo Foundation (PVF) is a registered UK charity, based in Edinburgh, that supports vulnerable rural communities across the world to develop innovative nature-based solutions (NBS) to reduce poverty, conserve important ecosystems and tackle climate change – primarily through our stewardship of our Standards (PV Climate & PV Nature) and partnership programmes (ACORN). 

The Plan Vivo Carbon Standard (PV Climate) is internationally recognised for its focus on ethical and fairly traded climate services, which ensures that a greater share of income reaches those that most need it. Our unique model ensures that at least 60% of benefits go back to the communities on the ground, which has a significant impact on strengthening resilience for vulnerable communities and reducing drivers of deforestation.
