We've already sold over 100,000 VCUs from this project. A VCU represents an environmental good – specifically, one metric tonne of GHG emissions reduced or removed from the atmosphere.
This project has 30,000 VCUs on offer for buyers. Unlike stocks and bonds, VCUs do not represent a claim on future revenue streams. Rather, prices depend largely on demand for GHG emission reductions, whether from voluntary markets or from climate regulations.
All VCUs are held in registry accounts linked to the VCS Project Database and can be tracked online from issuance to retirement. Learn more about the VCS registry system here. The complete details of the project have been uploaded on the global environmental regist
Companies comprised over 92 per cent of voluntary emissions reductions (VERS) in 2011, which allow businesses to invest in climate-related projects to offset the carbon impact of their organisation.
European buyers of voluntary carbon offsets purchased a record 33 million tonnes of carbon credits in 2011, worth $204m. Renewable energy projects proved popular, generating 45 per cent of all transacted reductions in 2011, with wind making up 30 per cent of the entire voluntary carbon market.
The breadth and quality of the carbon offset credits available to the voluntary market is better than ever before, in part thanks to the continued evolution of voluntary carbon standards and innovative methodologies
Retirement of Carbon Credits
An important or essential stage in the process of offsetting emissions is the retirement of carbon credits on the registry. This is an essential step to make sure that retired carbon credits can never go back into circulation, and that the same credits cannot be sold twice.
Enterprises that have adopted an environment-friendly modus operandi can be said to be characterized by choosing methods of reducing their carbon footprint in a way that is most effective from the viewpoint of their business strategy. Offsetting emissions through buying carbon credits is available to any and all businesses, therefore it is a simple and almost obvious solution.
The most widely accepted certification standards are the Verified Carbon Standard or VCS, the Social Carbon Standard and the Gold Standard.
We can source domestic and international carbon offsets from a variety of projects to meet your sustainability goals.
