ISS Ice, Sports & Solar GmbH

Participant ID: DE-1946-1210

Valid until: 27.07.2023

This certificate guarantees that the reported quantity of 124 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.

ISS Ice, Sports & Solar 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.

ISS Ice, Sports & Solar 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.

Zorlu Enerji Wind project

Pakistan

The Zorlu 56.4 MW Wind Farm Project will contribute to local sustainable development in the project area by exerting the following effects:

Economic development: Pakistan is currently facing acute energy supply bottlenecks. The project activity is expected to generate an estimated amount of 159,010 MWh per year and will therefore contribute to a reduction in the number of black-outs and brown-outs experienced by other Pakistani grid users. This can help to improve the economic performance of other businesses connected to the grid and supports economic growth in Pakistan.

Social development: The project will offer job opportunities for local people during the construction phase and the operational period, thus creating income opportunities and contributing to a higher living standard in the region. 

Environmental development: By avoiding air pollution from fossil-fuel power plants and reducing greenhouse gas emissions significantly, the project has positive effects for the local environment and improves Pakistan’s climate balance. 

Technological development: The project activity is the first of its kind in Pakistan. By adopting foreign manufacturer wind turbines, the project initiates an important transfer of technical know-how to Pakistan, and can act as a pioneer in promoting the spread of this technology to other wind power projects in this country.

Addressing methane emissions and promoting a sustainable use of resources in rural farms

Fueled by poultry litter, this innovative project feeds renewable electricity back to the grid. This displaces electricity from thermal power plants in the Andhra Pradesh region, reducing emissions and supporting the expansion of the renewable energy industry. As the poultry litter is collected rather than left to decay in open fields, odour and sanitation are improved for the local villages, while job opportunities provided by the plant help boost the economy.

The Context 
Prior to the project, litter from the local poultry industry was dumped in landfill pits near the farms, which resulted in methane being released freely into the atmosphere. In the first two decades after its release, methane is 84 times more potent than carbon dioxide in terms of heating up the atmosphere. This project is connected to the Southern Regional Electricity Grid of India, which is dominated by thermal power plants. 

The Project 
The project involves installing a 7.5 MW capacity generator to burn poultry and biomass waste, including litter and rice husks, that will be collected from local farms. Besides the small internal consumption, the energy will be exported to the grid. 

The Benefits 
By feeding into the grid, the project displaces electricity generated from fossil fuels, thus avoiding the associated emissions. In addition, it helps to avoid the methane emissions arising from poultry waste being disposed of in anaerobic lagoons in the surrounding fields. This improves the environment, in terms of sanitation and odor for the nearby villages resulting in better health and living conditions. The project also creates a number of job opportunities, a share of which goes to the local communities, boosting the regional economy, while training provides staff with skills that could help other renewable energy projects flourish
