ICROA provides leadership and a unified voice advocating for rigorous industry standards. ICROA members support a reduce-and-offset approach to carbon management, and they all comply with and publically report against the ICROA Code of Best Practice.

Mandate:

- Support rigorous standards for the voluntary carbon market.
- Help businesses and individuals achieve significant direct emissions reductions.
- Encourage the use of real, verified, permanent, additional and unique carbon offsets as part of an overall reduce-and-offset carbon management strategy.
- Establish best practice, through the promotion of the ICROA Code of Best Practice and adherence to that Code among its members.
- Provide an expert voice on carbon reduction policies, strategies, products, and services.

ICROA members currently serve thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of individuals. It is a membership-based organisation, governed by an Executive Committee made up of representatives from the member companies. It is primarily funded by membership fees.

The founding members are:

•Carbon Clear
•The CarbonNeutral Company
•ClimateCare
•Climate Friendly
•co2balance
•Native Energy
•targetneutral

These organisations identified a clear need to provide a credible and unified voice for scientifically rigorous, verifiable, and effective solutions to climate change. The founding members sought to promote best-practice in the voluntary carbon market by increasing ICROA's membership.

The ICROA Code provides guidance on the ways carbon reduction and offset providers should go about their business. The ICROA Code sets the best practice benchmark for the industry. The ICROA Code highlights five offset standards/certification schemes for carbon reductions bought as offsets that ICROA consider to be high quality. These are CDM, JI, the Climate Action Reserve, the Gold Standard, and the Voluntary Carbon Standard. ICROA members may also supply participants of the US EPA Climate Leaders programme with Climate Leaders offsets. The ICROA Code also has requirements for how members provide their services for carbon footprinting and green house gas reduction advice.
