Document Title:WCI Offsets System Essential Elements Draft Recommendations
Comment Period:Monday, 12 April 2010 through Wednesday, 12 May 2010
Document Description:

This recommendations paper (click on "view document" button below) is the second stage in developing a clear definition of a WCI greenhouse gas offset and the detailed eligibility criteria for GHG offset projects used for compliance purposes.  Based on stakeholder feedback and input from WCI Partners received on the July 2009 white paper, the Committee has developed these draft recommendations for the offset definition and essential criteria. 

The draft offset criteria are being designed to ensure that all offsets credits issued or accepted by WCI Partner jurisdictions are real, additional, permanent, verifiable, and enforceable.  The WCI Offsets Committee poses these questions to stakeholders:
  • What is your impression of the draft recommendations overall and individually?
  • What has been your experience with offset systems utilizing these or similar recommended definitions for an offset and its essential criteria?  Have the advantages of these definitions outweighed the disadvantages?
For questions regarding comment submittal:Tim Lesiuk
