Find carbon projects by project name or description

You can search for carbon project names and descriptions for a string of text. This can be useful if you're looking for a specific project by name or want to find projects which contain specific keywords in their description.

Each API endpoint will link to its reference documentation where you can create sample requests in other programming languages as well as enter the parameters you desire.

The List Projects endpoint allows you to retrieve an array of carbon projects filtered by category, country, vintage, project names, and project descriptions. In this example, we'll search for carbon projects containing the string REDD+(encoded for the URL as REDD%2B):

Request
curl --request GET \
  --url 'https://api.carbonmark.com/projects?search=REDD%2B' \
  --header 'Accept: application/json'

The response you may receive will contain a list of all carbon projects that fit your query parameters. Below we've listed an example of two of the carbon projects from the response:

The information from this response such as project address may be enough for your needs.

To view the full details of a project, you can call the Project Details endpoint. Your request must combine the carbon project's key or projectID with the desired vintage year. For our example above, this would be VCS-1052 and 2012 combined as VCS-1052-2012. Here's the example request:

Request
curl --request GET \
  --url https://api.carbonmark.com/projects/VCS-1052-2012 \
  --header 'Accept: application/json'

The response will contain the full carbon project details including available supply, listings, prices, and more:
