These carbon credits are issued by the Clean Development Mechanism Project administered by the United Nations Secretariat.
They finance verified projects that reduce and eliminate carbon and are subject to a rigorous registration and verification process.
CDM Projects earn Certified Emission Reduction (CER) units each equivalent to one tonne of CO2e.
Each CER has a unique serial number and is recorded on the CDM Registry of the United Nations Secretariat.
Projects can include wind, solar, hydro, forestry, vegetation, biomass waste recovery, chemical and fugitive emission reduction. They aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions whilst supporting sustainable development in developing countries.
- Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate from the UN CDM Registry with the serial numbers of your CERs which you can verify on their website.
- Your CERs are recorded as having being used to offset your emissions. This is called being ‘voluntarily cancelled’ and they are taken out of circulation and cannot be used again.
The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust with an independent verification process directed by the UNFCCC. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials. The Institute believes that climate friendly companies should be recognised by consumers. When you buy offsets we grant you the right to use our logo on your website, packaging or where anyone comes into contact with your brand and we will promote you through our social media network of over 750,000 followers.
Solar power projects has the potential that to save the burning of millions of tonnes of fossil fuels, especially coal, each year. They produce renewable energy to power homes and industry, keeping greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere. There is a growing demand for energy, and solar power can drive a low carbon future and boost local economic development.
To replace thermal and fossil fuel-based energy, these projects install a solar power facility in areas that can harness sunshine effectively. They reduce the emissions of harmful greenhouse gases, instead exporting clean and renewable energy to the grid. Projects assist to reduce emissions in developing counties and help achieve progressive environmental and economic targets by increasing solar energy capacity.
Solar energy projects reduce a developing country’s reliance on carbon-intensive energy sources and boosts local economies by providing job and training opportunities. As well as these direct benefits, the project funds a number of additional initiatives for local communities: installing solar street lights, giving solar lamps to local families and upgrading facilities such as schools and health clinics to ensure 24×7 uninterrupted access to electricity.
These projects makes a significant contribution to climate action globally by reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in conventional electricity generation. They can boost local small economies, create steady jobs and stimulate renewable energy technology in developing countries.
CDM projects adhere to strict technological standards and are rigorously scrutinized through an international monitoring, reporting and verification process.
