Our second both Gold Standard and CDM certified project investment has been made. This time we bought another 1000 tonnes CO2. Thank you everyone for making this possible! Together we are speeding up the transformation towards a sustainable world!
The Thailand national electricity grid provides electricity to households across Thailand. Over 90% of electricity consumed in Thailand’s grid is supplied by fossil fuel fired power plants which emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Solar Power Company Limited has constructed a solar photovoltaic plant that supplies clean renewable electricity to the Thailand grid.

By providing the surrounding community with reliable and sustainable energy, the Dak Pone Hydro project displaces diesel generators and wood-fired heating and lighting, which leads to better indoor/outdoor air quality and reduces respiratory and eye diseases. Sustainable development is also supported through the construction of irrigation canals, bridges, roads and a local school.

We have now made another investment with the help of our users, this time in the Ullunkal Hydro Power Project (100 tonnes CO2 – CDM-standard), Inner Mongolia Yihewusu Wind Power (100 tonnes CO2 – CDM-standard) and Salto Pilao Hydropower Plan (100 tonnes CO2 – VCS-standard) with the help from our our friends behind the Carbon Story plattform.
Carbon Story was a plattform for buying carbon offsets for individuals and companies, not unlike our own service. Unfortunately Carbon Story closed down this July due to not having reached a turnover that covered their costs. Before it closed, we were offered to invest in 300 tonnes of CO2 offsets, which we happily accepted.
With this we have also had the opportunity to reach out to all the users of Carbon Story and telling them about GoClimateNeutral. This took us to 50 active users from 6 different countries, so thank you Carbon Story and welcome to our community friends!

Another investment has been made by our community, this time offsetting 75 tonnes of CO2. Thank you everybody!
The investment was made in a biomass project. This is not the cheapest type of investment among CDM-projects, but it at least has a medium likelihood of being additional (according to this report: https://ec.europa.eu/clima/sites/clima/files/ets/docs/clean_dev_mechanism_en.pdf ). Many other types of CDM-projects are unfortunately less likely to be additional.
Since last time we have learnt a bit about climate project investment and are now actively looking for other alternatives to CDM-project, such as Gold Standard or Fair Trade. We will keep you informed as our search for the most climate effective investments continue.

We have now invested in a Solar Project in Gujarat, and thereby contributed to removing 400 tones of CO2 from the atmosphere. Thank you everyone!
You can read more about the CDM project at the UN site here, and read even more project details here.
Upwards and onwards!

With our latest offset investment we have managed to offset 90 tons of CO2! Yay! Thank you everyone!
This time the investment is in a Wind Power Project in Tamilnadu, India. The total capacity of this project is 4.35 MW generated from four wind mills. By using this kind of renewable energy instead of fossil fuel generated energy climate change hopefully will slow down somewhat.
