About The Carbon Protocol of South Africa
The Carbon Protocol’s mission is to raise awareness and facilitate the transition to a climate resilient society
The Carbon Protocol of SA was launched in an attempt to make a difference in the shift towards a low-carbon economy. The Carbon Protocol is a section 21, not-for-profit organisation registered in April 2009. The Carbon Protocol was established as a collaboration of concerned and interested parties in South Africa to provide a platform to publicly report greenhouse gas emissions into a single registry which supports both the voluntary and mandatory reporting programmes. The Carbon Protocol also hosts a greenhouse gas assessor database and maintains the development of the Carbon Neutral logo. Carbon Protocol of SA also hosts the Programme of Activities (PoA) platform for projects that generate carbon credits under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) framework.
