Generating carbon credits

The offsetting services of CNG consist of two pillars. The first is portfolio management, meaning buying and selling offsets on behalf of our clients. The second one is carbon project development. We are developing our ‘own’ carbon projects to provide credits to a portfolio with a thematic approach on 4 themes.
Climate Neutral Group approaches projects in a holistic manner. This means that animals and livelihoods are always taken into account, as well as the atmosphere, nature, economy, local communities, the current and future state of ecosystems and the beneficial effects for people.

Blue carbon

The restoration of mangroves, also called blue carbon, is very important for the climate. Mangroves can store four times more carbon then rainforests can. And not only that: the impact of mangrove projects is multiple. Next to carbon storage they serve as storm barriers for coastal protection. Mangroves are hotspots for biodiversity, serving as nurseries for fish and as clean water filters. We’re setting up a carbon programme on mangrove restoration and conservation in the south of Brazil together with local NGO Çarakura Institute. They work closely with local communities, indigenous people and authorities; an important condition for projects to succeed.

Water and Sanitation

Access to clean water is not only extremely important for humans but also for the climate. If a project can prevent the boiling of water before use, a lot of firewood will be saved and less CO2 will be released into the air. Together with the Dutch water operators VEI we have developed a project on water and sanitation in Arusha, Tanzania.

Methane from landfill gas

Methane is a greenhouse gas (GHG), so its presence in the atmosphere affects the earth’s temperature and climate system. It is the second most abundant GHG after carbon dioxide (CO2), accounting for about 20 percent of global emissions and more than 25 times as potent as carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere. Over the last two centuries, methane concentrations in the atmosphere have more than doubled, largely due to human-related activities. In line with the US and EU methane pledge at the COP26 in Glasgow, CNG has committed to develop landfill gas extraction projects where methane is captured and used to generate power.

Regenerative agriculture

Rotational grazing, cover cropping, reduced tillage and other practices improve soil quality and the farmer’s bottom line. Increased soil organic carbon and reduced greenhouse gas emissions from these practices can also generate carbon credits of the highest quality. Our South African AgriCarbon Programme pays farmers for the carbon credits they generate from practicing sustainable land management.

Certify and finance your project

We at Climate Neutral group believe that investing in projects that reduce or remove climate damage while improving the living conditions of communities and enhancing biodiversity should have a central role in combatting our environmental and climate related problems. We are actively looking for projects that protect nature, biodiversity and wildlife as well as projects that reduce emissions from the burning of fossil fuels and biomass or contribute to the transition towards more sustainable practices. We are willing to put all our effort in supporting projects that contribute to the wide spectrum of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Do you have a technology, circular system, process or innovation that reduces CO2 and do you need carbon financing? Whether it is regenerative agriculture, forestry, blue carbon, safe water access or cleaner cookstoves, we could help you adding the carbon component to your project. We translate this into a methodology that can be certified under VCS or Gold Standard and help you with the PDD. We can even analyse your (agri)food supplychains to explore carbon reduction opportunities there. Our climate project specialists in the Netherlands and South Africa know all about technologies, agroforestry and regenerative agriculture.
