annual carbon emission reduction in metric tonnes

The project promotes renewable solar energy sources. The project activity involves the installation of a 500 MW solar project in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. During the first crediting period of 10 years, the project is expected to replace approximately 887,800 t CO2-eq per year of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and generate over 900,000 MWh/year of clean electricity, mainly replacing power from thermal/fossil power plants.

Area under project (in hectares)

The goal of the project in Borneo is to reduce carbon emissions in Indonesia by protecting over 90,000 hectares of tropical peat swamp forest. This area is home to a rich diversity of life, including the endangered Borneo orangutan. The project spans along the southern coast of Borneo in the Central Kalimantan province and, in addition to preserving this valuable habitat, aims to ensure the integrity of the adjacent world-famous Tanjung Puting National Park by establishing a buffer zone along its entire eastern border, covering approximately 90 kilometers.

annual carbon emissions reduction in metric tonnes

The Ecomapuá Amazonas Project is located in the state of Pará, Brazil, and aims to prevent deforestation in an 85,000 hectare area. Over the entire project duration of 30 years, from 2003 to 2032, a total of 1,432,278 metric tons of CO2-eq are expected to be saved.

In addition to protecting and preserving the forest, a portion of the revenue from the sale of emission certificates is used to improve the social and environmental conditions of the local population.

Marajó Island is of highest priority for the Brazilian Ministry of Environment, and the REDD project Ecomapuá Amazonas contributes to achieving national conservation goals and furthering efforts to protect this invaluable ecosystem.

About Climate Protection Projects

Climate protection projects are initiatives that aim to save CO2 and combat climate change. There are different types of climate protection projects that work in various ways. The most common project types include:

  • Renewable Energies: Projects that promote renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, hydropower, or biomass can help reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. These projects substitute conventional energy sources like fossil fuels.

  • Energy Efficiency: Climate protection projects in the field of energy efficiency aim to reduce energy consumption. This can be achieved through modernizing buildings, using energy-efficient technologies, and promoting conscious energy consumption habits. Reduced energy demand automatically leads to a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Reforestation and Forest Protection: Projects focused on reforestation and forest protection contribute to carbon sequestration, as trees absorb and store CO2 from the atmosphere. Forests are the second-largest natural carbon sink on our planet.

  • Sustainable Agriculture: Climate protection projects in the field of agriculture aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture while ensuring food production.

  • Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Projects: These projects capture carbon dioxide (CO2) and store it underground. The technology is relatively new and involves significant investments.

Carbon compensation should never be considered an alternative to carbon reduction but rather as a bridge technology.

Key Standards in the
Voluntary Carbon Market

Verified and audited climate protection projects refer to projects that have undergone an independent verification and auditing process to ensure that their environmental and climate protection objectives have been truly achieved. These verification and auditing procedures are often conducted by recognized certification systems or organizations. Here are some examples of such systems:

  • Clean Development Mechanism (CDM): The CDM is a mechanism under the Kyoto Protocol that allows projects in developing countries to generate emission reductions and sell them as certified emission reduction units (CERs).

  • Verified Carbon Standard (VCS): The VCS is a leading voluntary standard for verifying emission reduction projects. Projects that meet VCS requirements are reviewed and verified by independent auditors. This ensures that claimed emission reductions are real, measurable, and additional.

  • Sustainable Agriculture: Climate protection projects in the field of agriculture aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture while ensuring food production.

These certification and verification systems play a crucial role in ensuring the integrity of climate protection projects. Through independent review and verification, it is ensured that the projects achieve their goals and that the reported emission reductions indeed occur.
