VERRA VCS 0506 Hydro Power Carbon Offset in Turkey

Spread the word

The Institute assists companies and individuals to go carbon neutral by offering wholesale prices direct from the trading floor of the global carbon spot exchange. We negotiate bulk discounts for our 750,000 followers, allowing us to pass on the best market price.

These carbon offset credits are issued by the the Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, the world’s leading greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program. VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere and drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature.

  • Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate from the Verra Registry with the serial numbers of your Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) which you can verify on the registry website.

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust with an independent verification process. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials. The Institute believes that climate friendly companies should be recognised by consumers. When you buy offsets we grant you the right to use our logo on your website, packaging or where anyone comes into contact with your brand. We are also happy to provide editorials through our social media network of over 750,000 followers.

Hydro Power

SITUATION

Demand for electricity is steadily increasing in developing countries and CDM Hydro Projects aim to develop sustainable energy options in order to limit greenhouse gas emissions and improve local electricity supply which is often limited by rudimentary infrastructure.

SOLUTION

These projects produce renewable energy replacing electricity generated by fossil fuels, keeping millions of tonnes of CO2 out of the atmosphere each year in areas that have enormous hydropower potential to supply the surrounding region with clean energy.

IMPACT

By producing clean, renewable electricity, this project is reducing reliance on fossil fuel energy sources which cuts global emissions. It also contributes to local economic development by providing job opportunities and improving the local infrastructure.

OUTCOME

Meeting the growing demand for electricity with clean energy to help to drive a low carbon future and boost local economic development. Provide opportunities for the next generation of renewable energy technicians and pave the way for similar projects in the region.

Verification

The Verra Registry issues carbon credits, each is equivalent to one tonne of CO2e. It is the central repository for all information and documentation relating to Verra projects and units. The Verra Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system. Projects are subject to a rigorous verification process and Verra’s diligence and transparency underpins the positive outcomes of carbon projects it certifies.

    When the landfill in Osaki, in the southwest of Japan, reached capacity, an incinerator was the logical next step. Instead, the town decided to get serious about recycling. Ahead of International Zero Waste day, marked on 30 March, Kasumi Fujita, a town councillor committed to Osaki’s low waste policies, tells UN News what inspired her.
