What is the Carbon Protocol of SA?

The Carbon Protocol of SA is a section 21, not-for-profit organisation, registered in April 2009. The Carbon Protocol of SA was established as a collaborative entity of concerned and interested parties within South Africa, with the aim of raising awareness and facilitating the transition to a climate resilient society, through:

 

1 Maintaining and managing The Carbon Neutral Logo for our members to benefit from this credible way of portraying carbon footprint and offset for products and / or part of processes (i.e. annual business report, fleet process, etc.)

2 Creating a platform for Voluntary and Mandatory Carbon Disclosure through the Protocol Registry as well as through providing an independent platform for the hosting of Programme of Activities (POA) as part of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects under the Kyoto Protocol on this page. The Carbon Protocol of SA acts as the Coordinating and Management Entity for these POA’s.

3 Hosting, maintaining and managing an Offset Service Provider and Assessors database and publishing regular newsletters with the most up to date international and national news relevant to the Carbon Protocol of SA members and buy viagra the broader climate-related community.

4 Providing a platform to optimise partnership opportunities, including an E-commerce Platform with Shop Green for the latest greenhouse gas based courses, education, research and other relevant resources.
