For project developers with all levels of experience in accessing the carbon market, the process of defining and performing the on-going monitoring of carbon assets is difficult and costly. We are committed to streamline the process for project developers looking to access the carbon markets by simplifying the collection and reducing the data required both up-front and on an on-going basis.
During a feasibility analysis, a project is initially screened through both automated checks and by our project team to ensure that it meets eligibility standards. A calculation of initial carbon credits that can be generated is produced and a recommendation is made on which standard is most appropriate. Our carbon methods and models support all current market standards including; Kyoto CDM, California Climate Action Registry, Chicago Climate Exchange, and the Voluntary Carbon Standard. In addition, Terra Global Capital is committed to closely following the development of all emerging future voluntary and regulatory standards.
Once projects are screened, our carbon modeling team identifies data requirements and defines the most appropriate and cost-effective measurement and analysis methods given the specific project activity and baseline conditions. These methods combine industry accepted forest inventory approaches with remote sensing techniques to increase the accuracy and reduce the amount of ground data required.
In addition to automated data input and project tracking, we provide field support to ensure that project developers can efficiently collect the data required to sell carbon credits.
