Voluntary systems and standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Voluntary systems and standards to reduce greenhouse gas emissions


Materials given in this publication represent an overview of the voluntary systems and standards available in the world to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. International and national systems and standards are examined, and the procedures for the preparation and review of projects are. The analysis of the applicability of international experience to Russian projects aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or to increase their absorption by forests is made. The examples of Russian projects that successfully participated in the voluntary markets of greenhouse gases emissions reduction units are provided. We consider separately the international and Russian Standard ISO 14064 certification which is regarded as one of the promising directions of development of these activities in Russia. This publication can be used by developers of projects that are expected to be certified according to certain standards and / or to offer participants the voluntary emission reduction systems, besides, it is of use for anyone interested in this issue.
