What protocol was used to estimate emissions reductions or removal benefits?
Where is the offset project site located?
What is the project timeline?
The project crediting term is 60 years (01/01/2010 - 12/31/2069).
When did the project start?
When will a specified quantity of emissions reductions or removals start/be modified/be reversed and for what quantity?
18,874,423 carbon offset credits have been permitted to issue from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2021.
What type of project is it (carbon removal, avoided emission, or both and the breakdown of each)?
Project Type: Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+)
Does the project meet any standards established by law or by a non-profit entity?
VCS Methodology VM0015, version 1.1.
Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Alliance Standard: Gold
What is the durability period for the project and the greenhouse gas accounting period?
The duration of the VCS project crediting period is 60 years, 1 January 2010-31 December 2069. This is both the project lifetime and the GHG accounting period.
Is there an independent expert or third-party validation or verification of the project attributes?
Yes. Third-party verification is completed every 1-2 years.
What amount of emissions are reduced or what amount of carbon is removed on an annual basis?
The project’s estimated annual emissions reductions are 1,426,648.
What accountability measures are in place if carbon storage projects are reversed for this project?
Details about accountability measures for reversals can be found in the VCS Standard v4.4, section 3.2.20.
What accountability measures are in place if future emissions reductions do not materialize for this project?
Credits from VCS 1650 are issued ex-post. This means credits are only issued after the reductions have been verified by an independent third party. If future emissions reductions do not materialize, credits will not be issued.
What are the pertinent data and calculation methods needed to independently reproduce and verify the number of emissions reductions or removal credits issued for this project?
All calculation methods for the project and methodology are publicly available in the Project Design Document(s) and registry website, which can be found here.
