Our Approach to Carbon Credit Assessment
What do we look for in a carbon-offset credit?
By providing a clear, transparent, description of the key conditions underpinning carbon credit integrity, we aim to provide the information our clients need to make an objective informed decision.
We identify credits that have the maximum appeal to the market and consequently have the potential for maximum price appreciation. The carbon credits we source are as a minimum certified to the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) to establish that the projects genuinely reduce Co2 emissions and most importantly are traceable and can be fully audited and therefore are totally transparent.
We search for projects that have particular environmental, social and economic benefits.
At The Trend Is Blue, we specialise in helping commercial bodies draw up their carbon management strategies’. Therefore we believe we are in the best position to understand the mind-set of the buyer when it comes to sourcing credits, as by keeping our finger on the pulse we know what they are looking for.
As a matter of corporate policy and environmental integrity we avoid certain offset credits, for example;
- Industrial gases: N20, HFC, CF4, C2F6, SF6.
- Carbon offsets from coal plants because they are based on flawed methodology.
