Our Latest Projects
Southern Ute Methane Capture
The Southern Ute Indian Tribe in La Plata County voluntarily captures and processes methane emissions from underground coal beds, distributing it via pipeline for use as natural gas. This project, verified with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), eliminates 23,000 to 60,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
This project enables the Southern Plains Land Trust, a local organization dedicated to preserving shortgrass prairie, to acquire and conserve 6,600 acres of the Jagers Ranch in southeastern Colorado in February 2020.
- reduce or remove emissions from one or more of the six greenhouse gases -reduce emissions at the site where they are implemented by reducing or displacing the use of fossil fuels -demonstrate clear ownership of the emissions reductions*
**projects that reduce or displace grid electricity are not considered. They result in indirect emission reductions which may cause ownership and double counting concerns
We only invest in projects and methodologies that have the potential to be replicated to generate a larger impact.
For projects that pass our due diligence, an Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement will be negotiated with project developers. This contract vehicle establishes such key terms as ownership of the project’s emission reductions, price, the timing of the payment, and provisions in case the project underperforms.
