Development of carbon offset projects.
To reduce the global carbon footprint.
The idea behind the carbon offset mechanism is simple: to stimulate sustainable development and emission reductions, while giving countries, organizations and individuals some flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction targets. Hence carbon offsetting is a prominent tool in promoting greenhouse gas emission reductions, especially for private actors in the context of voluntary carbon offsetting.
However, in order to participate in carbon offsetting schemes, projects must meet rigorous requirements ensuring that the offsets generated are credible and accurate.
At EcoTraders, we help our clients develop high-quality projects, allowing them to earn revenues while reducing their carbon footprint.
We advise organizations looking to develop their own carbon offset project in a variety of industrial and municipal sectors, including energy efficiency, renewable energy generation, and waste-to-energy.
