What are carbon credits?
A carbon credit is a tradable certificate equal to one tonne of carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere that can be acquired by individuals and companies who are interested in lowering their carbon footprint, either voluntarily or to meet their emission reduction commitments. Carbon credits are a Clean Development Mechanism created and developed to mitigate the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases by developed countries under the Kyoto Protocol, while promoting sustainable development and social inclusion in developing countries.
How are they obtained?
Carbon credits can be traded or acquired through certified reforestation or forest conservation projects qualified under Clean Development Mechanisms; projects that capture carbon dioxide (CO2) and/ or reduce the effects of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which contribute to global warming. They are also developed in the voluntary market.
How do we do it?
In partnership with our strategic allies, we conduct specialized consultancies to calculate the carbon footprint of our corporate clients and design sustainable development projects in reforestation that will grant them a neutral balance of their carbon emissions. These projects are evaluated by the Clean Development Mechanisms (CDM) Executive Board – to calculate their impact and adjudicate the corresponding carbon credits to the project- or by direct negotiation in the voluntary market.
