Carbon Asset Development and Commercialization Services

Global Sustainable has vast experience in developing carbon assets of greenhouse reduction projects. The team has developed assets of projects of various technologies ranging from Cookstove projects, mini hydro power projects, wind power projects, co-generation projects, biomass projects and energy efficiency projects.

This experience ranges from Africa, South Asia and USA. We are experienced in developing carbon assets both at compliance market (CDM) and Voluntary Market. We help your project get this valuable asset that is normally between 3 to even up to 50% (in the case for Cookstove projects) the cost of your project

Why Choose Us

We create a breakdown of the key components of carbon asset development such as:

  1. Identification: The first step in carbon asset development is identifying opportunities for emissions reductions or carbon removal. This can include projects such as renewable energy installations, reforestation efforts, energy efficiency improvements, and more. The goal is to find activities that lead to a net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

  2. Quantification: Once potential projects are identified, it’s essential to quantify the emissions reductions or removals they can achieve. This involves using established methodologies and data to estimate the carbon impact of the project accurately. Various standards and protocols, like the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) or Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), provide guidance on how to quantify carbon assets.

  3. Registration and Certification: To participate in carbon markets or gain recognition for emissions reductions, projects often need to be registered and certified. This involves submitting project documentation, conducting third-party audits, and ensuring compliance with relevant standards and regulations.

  4. Carbon Credits: Once a project is certified, it can generate carbon credits or offsets. These are tradable units representing a certain amount of emissions reductions or removals. Carbon credits can be sold to organizations or individuals looking to offset their own emissions or meet regulatory requirements.

  5. Carbon Markets: Carbon credits can be bought and sold on carbon markets. These markets, such as the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) or voluntary carbon markets, provide a platform for trading carbon assets. The price of carbon credits can fluctuate based on supply and demand dynamics.

  6. Management: Carbon asset development doesn’t end with the creation of credits. Ongoing management is essential to ensure that emissions reductions or removals are sustained over time. This may involve monitoring the project’s performance, maintaining carbon accounting records, and adapting to changing circumstances.

  7. Reporting: Organizations involved in carbon asset development must report on their emissions reductions or removals accurately. This is often a requirement for compliance with regulations or standards. Transparent reporting is crucial for maintaining the integrity of carbon markets and ensuring that claimed emissions reductions are real and additional.

  8. Innovation: As the field of carbon asset development evolves, there’s a continual need for innovation in identifying new types of projects, improving measurement techniques, and exploring emerging technologies that can enhance carbon sequestration or emissions reduction efforts.

Carbon asset development plays a crucial role in the broader context of climate change mitigation, helping organizations and governments reduce their carbon footprints and work toward achieving climate goals. However, it’s important to ensure that carbon assets are developed and managed with integrity to avoid greenwashing or the misuse of carbon offsetting as a substitute for direct emissions reduction efforts.
