What are Carbon Credits?

Carbon Credits are a type of tradeable instrument that represents the reduction of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO₂e) emissions from the atmosphere. Every Carbon Credit represents 1 tonne of CO₂e reduction.

What are Carbon Credits used for?

Carbon Credits work by allowing organisations and individuals to offset their CO₂e emissions. For instance, a company could purchase one carbon credit and retire it to offset 1 tonne of their CO₂e emissions. Once used to offset any organisation’s emissions, they are retired forever, and cannot be sold again.

frequently asked questions_

Generally, high quality carbon offset projects must be associated with GHG reductions that are:

  • Additional
  • Not overestimated
  • Permanent
  • Not double counted
  • Significant environmental and social outcomes
  • Beneficial to relevant stakeholders

The prices of carbon credits from carbon offset projects vary mainly due to:

  • Technology, vintage and location of carbon offset project
  • Different standards, certifications and third-party ratings
  • Community based benefits
  • Existing carbon pricing regulations, such as increasing carbon taxes
  • Supply and demand of carbon credit

Carbon offsets could be used to abate against Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. It should be taken into consideration as part of a holistic strategy to abate residual emissions or compensate for emissions that cannot be avoided/abated. Carbon offsets are predominantly used to reduce Scope 3 emissions.

Scope 3 encompasses emissions that are not produced by the company itself and are not the result of activities from assets owned or controlled by them, but by those that it's indirectly responsible for up and down its value chain.
