Do you have a 'Green Project' that needs funding?
If your organization or business is working on a green project that reduces GHG emissions, such as using renewable fuel/energy, organics composting, land conservation/restoration, carbon capture etc, you may be doing more than a good thing for the environment – you may be generating revenue which, until now, you haven’t been able to access in the form of community carbon credits. These credits can then be listed and sold through the Community Carbon Marketplace (CCM) as part of the district’s objective of meeting its carbon-neutral commitment entirely from community sources of GHG reductions. All the selected businesses and organization will be listed on the CCM as part of the Squamish Valley Community Carbon Marketplace for purchase by the district, other local governments within the region, and any other buyers interested in supporting local green initiatives while lowering their own carbon footprints.
CCM not only provides a chance for you to generate additional funds, but also a platform for you to showcase your GHG reduction initiatives. Your listing on the CCM could be used for marketing, publicity, public announcements, generating new business and sustaining funding campaigns.
CCM is an online exchange to buy and sell community carbon credits generated from a wide range of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction projects, such as switching from fossil fuels to biofuels or electric vehicles, diverting organics from landfill, building retrofits, etc. Use CCM’s online project qualification and self-assessment tool to see if your project qualifies for moving on to the next step.
