· Certification of the sink effect of the plantations.
Galician Sink Performance
Certification of 100.000 ha (eucalyptus and pine)
3. CARBON COMPENSATION WITH CTX
CO2 Emissions Exchange
CGN CERTIFICATION currently has an Agreement with Global Environmental Markets (GEM) that can be very useful for developing existing projects on Carbon Footprint. In this way, the generating companies could access a recognized stock exchange for the compensation of the emitted emissions and, in turn, promote the forest absorption projects.
GEM can provide complete software to issue and market Carbon Credits:
Commerce on the Carbon Trade Exchange (CTX)
· Clients can trade as buyer or seller from anywhere with internet access
