Evaluating Carbon Offset Credits: A White Paper

Why Credits Generated through the Destruction of Harmful Refrigerant Gas are Among the Highest Quality Available

 

Carbon offset programs have grown in popularity over the past two decades. And while all carbon credits share certain defining characteristics, not all programs that develop those credits are created equal. A scientific review of climate change strategies, Project Drawdown, finds the control and elimination of fluorinated refrigerant gases as a top approach to reduce global warming.

Tradewater’s latest white paper, “Evaluating Carbon Offset Credits: Why Credits Generated through the Destruction of Harmful Refrigerant Gas are Among the Highest Quality Available,” outlines:

  • The latest commonly accepted standards for carbon offset quality as defined by The World Wildlife Foundation, Environmental Defense Fund, and other prominent organizations
  • Why projects must follow strict criteria for additionality, permanency, and accuracy
  • Comparisons of existing offset project types, such as forestry and refrigeration
  • How Tradewater’s projects meet the highest standards for greenhouse gas emission reductions

Tradewater offset credits are generated by permanently destroying some of the most potent greenhouse gases ever created under a process that is environmentally safe, easily quantified, and verified. Moreover, the refrigerant gases that Tradewater targets would never be destroyed in the absence of carbon offset projects.
