Climate Neutral Group cordially invites you to attend our business breakfast and informal discussion on the topic: “Developing Carbon Projects”.
After a successful Carbon Tax Essentials business breakfast in Johannesburg, businesses started to contact us for more information about how to develop carbon offset projects. Therefore, Climate Neutral Group is hosting another workshop, and this time during African Utility Week in Cape Town. The focus will be on the essential elements of developing an emission reduction project that can generate additional income through the sale of carbon credits within the context of South Africa’s future compliance carbon market.
The key objective of this essential workshop is to simplify the highly complex nature of carbon asset development. The timing of this workshop is very appropriate: there are only eight months left before the implementation of South Africa’s carbon tax. By purchasing carbon offsets, carbon tax liable companies will be able to reduce their tax liability. This can be a good opportunity for project developers.
This workshop will provide clarity to businesses who are unsure whether their envisaged project could yield carbon credits or to those who simply want to better understand the processes and costs involved in developing a carbon project.
Key focus areas to be covered include the South African carbon market and legislative landscape, stages of a carbon project as well as transaction costs, timelines, and carbon revenue potential. The various structures of an Emission Reduction Purchase Agreement (ERPA) will also be discussed. A number of practical examples will be used to ensure participants of the workshop leave with a good understanding of all the key elements of a carbon project.
