Assessment of Limits and Opportunities of Carbon Credit Generation in Humanitarian Activities
Location: International
Timespan: November 2020 to March 2021
Partners: Sofies
Description: This project analyzed opportunities for the certification of emissions reductions in humanitarian activities, and potentially monetizing them as carbon credits. We conducted an initial study of emission reduction potentials of a large portfolio of annual projects aimed at supporting population in conflict zones and emergency areas. As humanitarian projects require a rapid intervention that do not always facilitate the use of low carbon technologies, our client wanted to explore how a carbon credit certification process could be implemented to support the use of more climate friendly technologies., We analyzed the emissions reductions potential additionality and MRV criteria for different type of projects and proposed different scenarios that could facilitate the use of more energy efficient technologies, including potable water, efficient cooking and distributed energy.

Sustainable Housing Solutions for Low Income Housing
Location: Mexico
Timespan: May 2020 - February 2021
Partners: World Bank
Description: This project provided Technical Assistance to promote more sustainable housing solutions for low-income families in Mexico. This involved a review of energy consumption and emissions of the residential, low-income housing sector (social housing) in Mexico along with identification and mapping of relevant actors and stakeholders in the energy and energy efficiency sector related to social housing. Ultimately, future energy scenarios based on reviewed subsidy and housing programs were developed and used to make a set of policy and program-related recommendations to strengthen housing programs that promote sustainable housing solutions in Mexico and address remaining shortcomings and gaps.

Carbon Credit Rating Agency Scoping Report
Location: International
Timespan: March 2020 2020 to July 2020
Partners: Confidential
Description: This report presents an overview of a carbon credit rating methodology that can be applied by an independent carbon credit rating agency, focusing on a greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction integrity rating and broader Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) attributes. The overall intent is to provide purchasers of carbon credits with a simple, credible, transparent rating for comparing a wide variety of carbon credits available in the marketplace. The intended audience is the large number of private buyers who have entered or are contemplating entering the market to purchase carbon credits that they can retire to offset their own emissions.
