100 Tonne Carbon Offset
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.
The economic stability and social prosperity of developing countries depends upon the sustainable growth of the energy sector. Many are facing growing energy demands, which can lead to a strong dependency on imported coal and oil which places a substantial economic and climatic burden.
Instead of being vented into the atmosphere, energy such as waste heat in industry can be recovered and utilized to drive power plant turbines that generate electricity. Energy Recovery Project methods include capturing and transferring heat from a process with a gas or liquid back that would otherwise be wasted.
The energy source can be used to create additional heat or to generate electrical and mechanical power. This presents an alternative to the use of fossil fuels and encourages more sustainable production methods and green technology skills.
Energy recovery CDM projects help to improve energy supply in developing countries, often in situations where they have an unstable electricity grid. It reduces their use of fossil fuels, and helps to provides social and environmental benefits to communities in the surrounding areas.
CDM projects adhere to strict technological standards and are rigorously scrutinized through an international monitoring, reporting and verification process.
