Immediate climate action through elimination of financial barriers.
We work in partnership with National Oil Companies (NOCs) and independent oil producers to realize scalable emission reductions that can be achieved rapidly.
We offer the full service of project identification and assessment, followed by project financing and implementation. Managing all the activities of the project cycle are essential parts of our deliveries for carbon credit projects. It includes field work prior to validation and preparation for and conducting of the monitoring, reporting and verification of emission reductions.
An essential part of our services is to engage in project financing to overcome project implementation barriers. This includes sales of emission reductions as High-Quality Credits in carbon markets.
Our supply of carbon credits will comply with High- Quality criteria and requirements (standards). Standards under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) have guided our work until now and all credits we have brought to market have made use of CDM methodologies to test additionality, quantify and verify emission reductions in line with conservative baseline assumptions and document permanence of emission reductions. We will adhere to new and/or revised standards which are under development and discussion through many initiatives. This includes safe-guards against double-counting and double-use of carbon credits and supply and use of credits that are aligned with a transition towards net-zero emissions.
We only engage in climate mitigation at existing oil and gas infrastructures with significant emission reduction potential. We are not involved in projects which expand oil and gas production capacity. In the context of the energy transition, we are conscious of not engaging in activities that would represent oil and gas “lock-in”.
We are climate mitigation experts with two decades of experience in project assessment and development. We specialize in monetizing emission reductions to make projects financially viable.
Our highly skilled, multidisciplinary, and experienced international team knows how to work under challenging conditions.
