CSG STANDARD – SUPPORT FOR SMALL-SCALE AND LOCAL CLIMATE PROTECTION PROJECTS
The CSG Standard is a new standard in the carbon-offsetting sector with a primary aim to support local environmental initiatives in the field of climate protection project development.
The CSG Standard is based on a set of criteria that provides customizable solutions for a wide range of green projects in order to foster the realization of a growing number of emission reduction activities worldwide. The CSG Standard intends to stand out from the conventional and restrictive existing carbon standards. The unique value of the CSG Standard is that it avoids both over-regulation and over-pricing, and it promotes flexibility and realistic budget planning.
Conventional voluntary carbon standards make it difficult, or even impossible, for many small-scale and local climate protection projects to benefit from carbon financing. Read more…
CSG STANDARD is a transparent and safe choice for any project in the field of carbon financing. The advantages of the CSG STANDARD are flexibility and low costs which enable adaptability to specific and local needs. Read more…
Besides keeping its flexibility, CSG STANDARD can only be expanded internationally if it is applicable globally anywhere, and at the same time remains adaptable to local needs. Read more…
CSG Standard projects support various climate protection and environmental education activities with additional financial resources that would otherwise be unavailable. Educational activities realized through green projects can generate real change in the long term, and they can also build-up the social basis of sustainability and carbon neutrality worldwide. The CSG Standard’s goal is to reach more and more people with this environmental awareness, education and training programme, and to not only, affect those directly involved in the programme, but to cascade the programme’s reach to a far wider audience.
The goal of the CSG Standard is not only to facilitate the projects in their immediate environmental surroundings, but also to involve those who purchase the carbon credits originating from project as well. In this way, in addition to the core environmental values these credits also represent exceptional public relations and marketing strategic value.
