Catalonia: Climate Credit System

Catalonia: Climate Credit System

The Government of Catalonia created its climate credit system to enhance the absorption of CO2 emissions. The carbon credits are an exchange unit designed to facilitate investments in nature-based solutions in Catalonia within the framework of voluntary compensation or corporate social responsibility initiatives. The Catalan system will allow the offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions within the region for the benefit of rural areas; climate credits generated in agriculture, soil management, and the restoration of coastal and marine habitats will be included in the system.
