Offset Committee Archive PDF Print

The WCI Partner jurisdictions include offsets in the WCI Cap-and-Trade Program design to reduce compliance costs by introducing a broader range of emissions reduction opportunities. 

The Offsets Committee developed recommendations on the design and operation of the offset system in consultation with sector experts and stakeholders.  The Committee recommended the definition for an offset and the criteria to evaluate an offset project, and evaluated existing protocols against these criteria

The Committee is finalizing recommendations for the process of offset project review and approval and credit creation, and for the process of offset protocol review and recommendation.
