Project evaluations and recommendations are based on technical review, project documentation for registration and verification, site visits and additional due diligence questionnaires developed by Global Offset Research.
We seek a variety of domestic and international projects across a range of industries and protocols.
Check if a project is truly additional
Our research reveals that less than 5% of the projects issuing credits are truly additional.
The key questions we would ask are:
Whether the project will be implemeted without funding from the sale of carbon credits?
Whether climate change funding was considered before a decision was made to start the project?
Apply correct methodology
We check whether the projects apply the correct methodological formulae and whether the emission reduction calculations correct and conservative.
We do not support projects which use hypothetical baselines/suppressed demand approach for quantifying emission reductions.
Correct sampling and verification procedures followed
We conduct site visits to confirm that the emission reduction claims are not exaggerated.
Our verifcation approach confirms that selected samples are non biased and representative of the entire population.
