NEFCO invites project owners and other interested parties to submit offers on future deliveries of certified emission reductions (CERs) from vulnerable projects.
Call for proposals, guidelines and documents are available here: www.norcap.org
Deadline for submission of offers is 8 January 2014.
-This launch represents the kick-off of the procurement of carbon credits for the Kyoto II period, where Norway has pledged to reduce its emissions to 84 percent of the 1990-level. This is an ambitious target which we now underpin by buying credits from stranded projects. In this way we are throwing a life jacket to a drowning market. We hope others will follow and restore confidence in the carbon market, a marked which has a potential to be one of the most effective instrument in the climate change policy, says the Norwegian Minister of Climate and the Environment, Tine Sundtoft.
