AzzeroCO2 offers its clients the possibility to compensate the greenhouse gas emissions generated by their activity through the purchase of CO2 credits.
AzzeroCO2 has a portfolio of afforestation projects developed directly in Italy, but also offers support for the realization of projects in other areas of Italy and for finding afforestation projects realized abroad. Contact us if you are looking for a project in an area of a country of your interest.
In order to be used as CO2 credits, the reductions of emissions of an afforestation project must be verified by independent third authorities on the basis of internationally recognized methods. In the last years various standards have been created in the voluntary market for the interventions’ transparent realization and accounting, and for proof of additionality and social co-beneficiaries. AzzeroCO2 has developed its own method for the realization and certification of afforestation interventions. AzzeroCO2 finds and selects projects that are developed and certified in conformity with the following standards: Ethical code, CCBA – VCS – VER Gold Standard – Plan Vivo – SOCIALCARBON
Public register of credits and compensation trademark
All the generated credits obtain a univocal serial number and are listed in a public register. Once sold, the credit is then cancelled from the register. The compensation trademark issued by AzzeroCO2 therefore contains a univocal code that permits the client to trace the purchased credits and guarantee that the same credit is not sold twice. By inserting the code in the appropriate window it is possible to access a specific page in the register and consult the documentation regarding the details of the individual compensations.
