Carbon Portfolios

Below are details of the 2016 portfolio sold through our online calculators. 

All of the carbon credits in the portfolio come from past ‘vintages’ (a vintage means the year in which the carbon credit was generated). 

The credits in the portfolio this year came from renewable energy and forestry projects.

Renewable Energy Projects

Renewable energy is any form of energy that comes from naturally replenished sources such as wind, hydro, geothermal, solar, and biomass energy. Electricity generation is one of the largest emitting sectors of greenhouse gases (GHGs), and renewable energy investment is a fast and effective solution to compensate for the emissions from fossil fuel generation. 

Projects in this portfolio:

  • Ayutthaya Agriculture Biomass Power (Vintage: 2011, delivery status: delivered)
  • West India Wind Power (Vintage: 2015, delivery status: awaiting delivery)

Other Projects

The remaining credits in the portfolio support emission reductions through conservation-based forest management. 

Conservation-based forestry management projects are not required by law, and often have to overcome financial, geographical, and biological barriers to realise implementation. Carbon finance provides an additional revenue stream helping to make these projects an attractive and viable option. 

Projects in this portfolio:

  • Sabah Rainforest Rehabilitation Project (Vintage: 2010, delivery status: delivered)
  • Oddar Meanchey Community REDD+ Project (Vintage: 2010, delivery status: delivered)
