We contractually include suitable projects in our project portfolio and support them by purchasing the generated emission reductions. The myclimate support for developing carbon offset projects includes the entire project development process from the project idea to the issuance of CO₂ certificates in accordance with renowned standards. International projects may be certified according to Gold Standard, Verra VCS or Plan Vivo and Swiss projects according to the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN)/Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) guidelines.
Please contact us if you would like to propose a project that is in the development process or has already been developed under one of the standards mentioned above.
All myclimate carbon offset projects must fulfill certain basic criteria. Please use the following checklist to make sure your project idea fits before submitting it to myclimate. It must fulfil all of the points on the list. The criteria for Swiss projects are available here.
The following additional criteria apply to land use and forestry (LUF) projects:
Carbon offset projects follow an internationally recognised development process. We stay in close contact with the project partners throughout the entire project lifecycle. Please expect a period of at least one year before the project is registered and two to three years until the first carbon credits are issued.
