The Decentralized Environmental Verification (DEV) Standard has three principles:
– Full open data. From day one all data collected in the site of the solution (the site of the offset) is open on two levels: simplified to the general public and detailed for registered verifiers, such as the offset buyers, research institutions, and digital content creators, ensuring this way maximum exposure of the data and interaction with it.
– Inclusion & progressive improvement. Big and small offsets alike have the possibility to comply: the most important aspect is not what data collection technologies a project can afford, but to what degree it opens its data and offers full transparency. Technology improvement (getting more and better data collection, data analysis, and data visualization technologies) can be performed over time, and progress can be tracked within the DEV Standard Platform.
– Traceability & immutability of certificates. Guaranteeing that the certificates are reliable and link to verifiable data sources.
