About

Directly or via intermediaries, the Foundation contacts programme or project owners who are selling certificates stemming from programmes and projects that are ongoing or in development. Schemes are assessed by the Foundation itself or by the intermediaries, taking into account the requirements specified by the Swiss Federal Council in the CO₂ Ordinance as to the admissibility of certificates.

 

Current status

The Foundation has signed an agreement with the owners of two climate protection programmes in India as well as in Malawi, Kenya and Uganda for the purchase an estimated 3.5 million CERs each, to be delivered by 2021. Also by 2021, and via an intermediary, it will furthermore purchase 2.5 million CERs stemming from small and medium-scale landfill gas projects in South America, which are threatening to shut down or have already shut down due to low market prices.
