United Nations recognition for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation 5.1.2015 Asian Age: Delhi
Adding yet another feather to its cap, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been registered as the world’s first transport sector project under the Programme of Activities (PoA) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), enabling it to quantify climate change benefit from all metro operations in India, an official statement said. The move will also facilitate the fast-tracking of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) registration of all upcoming rail based metro projects in the country which will entitle them to carbon credits for the extent of reduction in carbon emissions, which could be traded in the international carbon market for money. PoA is a UN-mandated mechanism which allows similar carbon credit projects to be clubbed together that can be operated and managed under a single umbrella. “Thus, for claiming carbon credits in future, DMRC will be the managing entity for all other metros of India under the Program of Activity (PoA) mechanism which will also facilitate ...

U.N. carbon scheme investors unlikely to get lifeline from Lima 12.12.2014 FirstPost: World

LIMA (Reuters) - Hundreds of companies in developing countries that invested in projects to generate UN-backed carbon credits had hoped the Lima climate talks would yield measures boosting the price of the credits, but they are likely to be disappointed. Negotiators and carbon market experts say that discussions at the UN climate conference have not seriously addressed a collapse in carbon credit prices as diplomats focus on the type of commitments countries are expected to make in a new treaty expected next year. "Our clients were hopeful of some type of decisions on that," said Melissa Hirschheimer of Eqao Consulting which assisted many companies in Brazil develop and register projects at the UN.

Dams Are Not Clean Energy 26.11.2014 International Rivers Sitewide RSS Feed
Date:  Tuesday, November 25, 2014 On December 1, 2014, COP20 in Lima, Peru will begin. During the Conference of Parties (COP), representatives from 195 countries will make important decisions about actions to confront global climate change under the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Various governments, multilateral financial institutions – like the World Bank and the BRICS Development Bank, national development banks – like BNDES, and large corporations will push for large dams to be considered as a source of cheap, clean energy necessary to address the global climate crisis – despite decade of mounting evidence to the contrary. This is exactly what has happened, for example, with the hydroelectric projects Santo Antonio and Jirau in Brazil, Santa Rita in Guatemala, and Barro Blanco in Panamá . Each of these projects received carbon credits from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol . These credits ignored the warnings of scientists ...

Rio says it will offset 3.6 million tonnes of carbon emissions at 2016 Olympic Games 31.10.2014 DNA: Opinion
The Rio 2016 local organizing committee set a target on Thursday to offset the total amount of greenhouse gases estimated to be produced by the world's largest multi-sport event. The Olympic Games are expected to generate 3.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), mostly due to traveling and accommodation of spectators, the local organizing committee (LOC) said. That number is slightly larger than what was released by the London 2012 Games, at around 3.4 million tonnes of CO2e. Rio 2016 LOC said, however, that it has no intention to tap carbon markets for their neutralization program. Instead, they will use a combination of projects from the public and private sectors. Organizers of large sports events such as the Olympics and the soccer World Cup have tried to reduce their carbon footprints in a response to criticism from environmental groups. The London Games had its emissions partially neutralized, while the Sochi Winter Olympics and the Brazil World Cup this year already reached full ...

Colombia to launch voluntary carbon credit trading 31.10.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
A Colombian environmental charity will launch a carbon trading platform in mid-2015 to companies at home and abroad seeking to voluntarily offset emissions, it said on Thursday, as projects in the Andean nation to cut greenhouse gases intensify. The Andean nation, one of the world's most biodiverse, has up to 17 million potentially reforestable hectares, an area larger than Greece, to generate carbon credits, said Fundacion Natura, the charity heading up the planting initiatives around the country. Though Colombia does not have legally binding greenhouse gas emissions limits, some local companies eager to show ecological credentials have paid upfront to finance projects generating credits independent certifiers will issue next year. "Colombia has big potential. There are large areas available for reforestation, and this is a big advantage in the voluntary markets," said Alexandra Ochoa, a climate change expert from the foundation as it announced the platform's future launch. The creation of a voluntary ...
