Pacific Carbon Trust has built its portfolio with three types of reduction activities:
These projects involve eliminating waste and improving productivity. Examples include flaring and venting reductions, methane capture and thermal insulation.
These projects involve switching from high carbon fuels to lower-carbon fuels such as biomass, transition fuel (natural gas) and electricity. Examples include burning wood waste, switching from coal to natural gas and replacing fossil fuel with electricity.
These projects involve the sequestration of carbon in the atmosphere, either through capture and storage or through establishing natural carbon sinks (forests / soils). Examples include improved forest management (IFM) and conservation initiatives.
