Carbon Offset Project Development Services
We can take you a step further in your GHG emission reduction goals by developing and conducting the feasibility of carbon offset projects such as Coal Mine Methane, Forest, Grassland, Urban Forest, Renewable Solar Energy and Wind Power, Live Stock, Nitrogen Management, Organic Waste Composting, Organic Waste Digestion (Bio-digester CHP), Nitric Acid Production, and Ozone Depleting Substances within Western Climate Initiative (WCI) provinces in Canada and states in USA.
Polar Design Studio is dedicated to provide services in help North America (Canada and US states) and developing countries (Middle East countries) in measuring their GHG emissions and finding low hanging carbon offset reduction projects under Canadian Provincial Carbon Offset Registries, US RGGI, Western Climate Initiative (WCI) and The Climate Registry (TCR) protocols, Voluntary Standards such as California Gold Standard and United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) for international projects.
Become Our Partner in Carbon Offset Project Development
There is a huge sector to be served related to the GHG reduction goals in each country. Collaboration between Polar Design Studio and your business venture will be highly beneficial in realizing the full financial potential of this emerging market. Your business venture will perform a preliminary screening and identify potential projects at its end and provide project details to Polar Design Studio.
Polar Design Studio’s team will review the project for GHG reduction potential and request more details from your business to compile a baseline emission and projected reduction in the next 10 or 21 year cycle.
In collaboration with your business venture, Polar Design Studio will develop a preliminary economic analysis providing project development, validation and verification cost and potential saving from carbon dioxide credits and to determine economic viability of the project.
Your business venture will share the preliminary project cost-benefit analysis of the project with the project developer and obtain their consent to proceed with the project for CDM mechanism. Your business venture will also inform about the project to the Designated National Authority (DNA) of the host country such as Ministry of Environment to facilitate a letter of no objection.
In consultation with your business venture and the project developer, Polar Design Studio will develop ‘Project Information’ (such as PIN) for registration with respective region registries in North America and UNFCCC CDM for international projects.
If the project information is accepted by respective registries in North America or UNFCCC CDM, Polar Design Studio will solicit a project sponsor to support the project development. A preliminary understanding will be developed with the sponsor for investing in the project development and owning the carbon reduction credits for a specified period and rate.
The following steps will be completed for project initiation and commissioning in collaboration with (1) project sponsor, (2) Polar Design Studio, (3) designated validation and verification body (4) project developer and (5) your business venture:
1. Project Information/Idea Notes’ (PIN)
2. Carbon offset project applicable Methodology and protocols
3. Project Additionality and Due Diligence
4. Baseline Study (BLS) and Monitoring Plan (MP)
5. Letter of Approval (LoA)
6. Project Design Document (such as PDD)
7. Validation and Registration
8. Initial Validation and project commissioning
9. Monitoring, Verification and Certification
10. Transfer of Carbon Offset Credits or emission reduction credits
