Under the proposal, a Green Credit programme (ICFRE) will be responsible for ensuring the effectiveness of this programme by implementing, managing, monitoring, auditing, reporting, and issuing Digital Green Credits per approved criteria. Green credits will be split up into categories, including tree plantation green credits, sustainable agriculture green credits, and waste management green credits.
