Thus, CO2Ol has the largest existing portfolio of high quality forestry carbon offset projects. The construction of new forest ecosystems to the voluntary offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions was for companies have always been very attractive, especially because these projects in addition to CO2 capture address other sustainability aspects such as the development of biodiversity and value chains in project countries and suitable due to the emotion and low complexity of ideal for a communication with the customers”, so Dirk Walterspacher. That these projects now standard can be awarded the gold, demand will decrease significantly increase after this high-quality forest carbon offset projects.” In addition, certificates from the three already CarbonFix standard to buy excellent projects of CO2OL, who are now on the way to a gold standard certification are, CO2OL company also offers the Way, an individual forest climate protection project as corporate Woods”to implement. “The gold standard for CO2 offset projects: the gold standard” certificate is a quality standard for CO2 offset projects.

Only such projects, where the local population is extensively incorporated into the decision-making process will receive the gold standard certificate. Also helps to ensure that the gold standard “projects actually in addition to the ‘business as usual’ projects take place, i.e.
to the development of already taking place.” The objectives are the same as those in the ‘ clean development mechanism’ (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol. However, ensuring a higher quality of the projects that the ‘ gold standard’ better is suitable as the CDM, to achieve these goals.
