Do you have a 'Green Project' that needs funding?
If your business or organization is working on a green project that reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such as using renewable fuel/energy, composting of organic waste, or land conservation/restoration, you may be doing more than a good thing for the environment – you could be generating revenue which, until now, you haven’t been able to access in the form of community carbon credits (C3s). These C3s can be listed and sold through the Comox Valley community carbon marketplace (CCM) as part of the Comox Valley Regional District’s objective of meeting its carbon-neutral local government commitment entirely from community sources of GHG reductions. Green projects from selected businesses and organizations will be listed on the Comox Valley CCM for purchase by local governments within the region or any other buyer that wishes to support local green initiatives while lowering their carbon footprint.
The Comox Valley CCM is an online exchange to buy and sell community carbon credits generated from a wide range of GHG emission reduction projects, such as switching from fossil fuels to biofuels or electric vehicles, diverting organics from landfill, building retrofits, land conservation/restoration, etc. Cowichan Energy Alternatives (CEA) is the CCM program administrator and actively works with sellers and buyers to create a simple and straightforward process.
The Comox Valley CCM not only provides a chance for you to generate additional funds, but is also a platform for you to showcase your GHG reduction initiatives. Your listing on the CCM could be used for marketing, publicity, public announcements and generating funding campaigns.
Use CCM’s online project qualification and self-assessment tool to see if your project qualifies for moving on to the next step. If you are uncertain or need more information then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 250-597-1491
The local Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction projects for this community are currently being assessed for listing. Please check our marketplace for a list of other inspiring GHG reduction initiatives.
