Participant ID: DE-1901-0420

Valid until: 17.09.2023

This certificate guarantees that the reported quantity of 2 tons CO2 has been calculated according to Greenhouse Gas Protocol Standard. The resulting emissions have been saved in Gold Standard and VCS tested climate projects.

CLIMATE EXTENDER GmbH has acquired shares (certificates) in climate protection projects corresponding to the calculated volume of CO2 and therefore plays a transparent part in the realisation of the projects. This ensures that the company compensates for its own CO2 emissions, and thus scales back the rise in global warming.

The projects have been certified, and the issue and closure of the certificates is registered transparently.

CLIMATE EXTENDER GmbH is therefore a voluntary participant in emissions trading, and thus makes a contribution to maintaining a viable environment by reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases. The holder of this certificate makes a sustainable contribution to the commitment to tackle global warming.

Kariba REDD+ Forest Protection

Zimbabwe

Saving forests, protecting wildlife and changing lives

Since the Kariba REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) project launched in 2011, more than 18 million tonnes of CO2 have been prevented from entering the atmosphere. The project has also supported the independence and well-being of local communities.

The Context
In recent decades, Zimbabwe has suffered from political and economic turbulence. With limited economic opportunities, desperate communities have delved deeper into the forests, clearing it for subsistence farming and fuelwood. More than a third of Zimbabwe’s majestic forests have been lost. Creating further instability for people with already precarious livelihoods.

The Project
The Kariba Project protects almost 785,000 hectares of forests and wildlife on the southern shores of Lake Kariba, near the Zimbabwe-Zambia border. One of the largest registered REDD+ projects by area it connects four national parks and eight safari reserves, forming a giant biodiversity corridor that protects an expansive forest and numerous vulnerable and endangered species – including the African elephant, lion, hippo, lappet-faced vulture and southern ground hornbill. As well as this, the project implements numerous community- focused initiatives detailed below.

The Benefits
Kariba is a community-based project, administered by the four local Rural District Councils (RDCs) of Binga, Nyaminyami, Hurungwe and Mbire. As such, the project supports a range of activities beyond environmental protection, promoting the independence and wellbeing of these communities. Improved clinic amenities provide better healthcare, infrastructure including new roads and boreholes improve daily life, and school subsidies are offered to the poorest quartile of the population. Project activities in conservation agriculture, community gardens, beekeeping training, fire management, and ecotourism create jobs and facilitate sustainable incomes, benefiting the entire region.

So far, the project has trained 233 local people to generate profit from sustainable beekeeping. Community gardens, beekeeping training, fire management and ecotourism create jobs and facilitate sustainable incomes that benefit the entire community.

CO2OL Tropical Mix

Panama

Reforestation with native tree species and sustainable cocoa production

In the project areas of CO2OL Tropical Mix, formerly fallow and degraded pastures are
degraded pastures are reforested with predominantly native tree species and converted into mixed forests.

The goal of the project is to produce high quality hardwoods while sequestering high levels of carbon, while stabilizing and restoring fragile and degraded areas in an economically, socially and ecologically viable
stabilized and restored in an economically, socially, and ecologically viable manner.

Forests provide a natural habitat for native animals and plants, enrich the soil, and help mitigate the greenhouse effect by sequestering CO2 from the atmosphere.

Parts of the land are used for the fair production of organic cocoa. Due to its sustainable management, the project combines
the project combines environmentally friendly timber and cocoa production with biodiversity conservation and ecosystem restoration.

Orange Suvaan Solar Photovoltaic Power Project in Maharashtra

India

Solar Energy for India

M/s Orange SuvaanEnergy Private Limited (OSEPL) is constructing a solar energy project in the village of Mhasaleim district of Dhule, Maharasthra, with a capacity of 100 MW (50 x 2 phases).

The aim of the project activity is to generate electrical energy through the operation of a photovoltaic solar power plant. The total installed capacity of the project activity is 100 MW.

The objective of the Project Activity is the generation of electrical energy using solar energy through the operation of photovoltaic solar panels.

The electricity generated by the project will be exported to the Indian power grid. The Project Activity will therefore displace a corresponding amount of electricity that would otherwise have been generated by the dominant fossil fuel based electricity grid.
