How much money can I make by selling my carbon reductions? 

As a partner, we are transparent about the distribution of income!

For you, as a GHG reduction project owner.

for the service fees we advance, so you don't have to pay any money.

Our margin.

Your carbon reductions are quantified, verified by us, and then converted into carbon credits. 1 carbon credit is exactly equivalent to 1 ton of GHG reduction. Finally, we market them on voluntary markets, where they are bought by companies, organizations and individuals who voluntarily commit to achieve carbon neutrality, and to support your ecological projects. 

Here is our pricing policy: 

  • We pay you 45% of the revenue from the sale of your carbon credits 
  • The more GHG reduction projects you complete, the more money you get
  • 35% of the revenue from sales covers our costs, and allows us to not charge you any fees
  • 20% is kept by Will Solutions as gross margin
  • Example: You run an eligible project that reduces 2000 tons of GHGs. Assuming that we have sold all of your carbon credits each year, and that the average selling price (2022 prices) of your carbon credits is $14 CAD: 2000 * 14 * 45% = $12,600 CAD per year, every year. 

The revenue you earn from your GHG reductions also depends on certain criteria

  • The acceptable price on the voluntary markets 
  • The supply and demand: Demand is expected to exceed supply before 2030 (according to McKinsey, demand will increase threefold by then), which will drive up prices. In fact, we are already seeing an increase in the average selling price since 2019. Good news for the climate and for your wallet!
  • The distinction of your GHG reductions. Indeed, there are different types of projects around the world. Ours, the Sustainable Community, is the world’s first small project cluster, validated by Verra’s VCS program.
  • The valorization of your reductions, achieved through the certification, communication and marketing processes carried out by our teams.

How can I be rewarded for my GHG reduction projects?

 

 

Does the concept speak to you and fit with your vision? We’re excited about it! 

Our expertise covers different types of GHG reduction projects, member organizations and reduction buildings/sites. Simply put, here are the eligibility criteria for becoming a carbon reducing member at Will Solutions: 

☑  B2B : be an organization, business or community. We are not yet able to accept individuals. 

☑  Buildings: Own or manage at least 1 physical building. This can be any type of building: commercial, institutional, agricultural, industrial, or logistics… For example, a company with an agricultural greenhouse is eligible. On the other hand, a 100% digitalized company without physical offices is not. 

☑  Types of projects: At the moment there are two types of emission reduction projects eligible at Will Solutions: 

  1. Energy conversion or efficiency projects. An energy conversion is, in general, the act of switching from a fossil fuel energy source to a less polluting energy source. Switching from oil to wind power is an example of energy conversion. 
  2. Waste management projects that allow for landfill avoidance or methane emissions. There are many applications such as recycling instead of landfilling, composting, reintegrating waste into the production chain, selling the waste to a buyer for reuse, switching to a recyclable feedstock, etc.
  3. To come: transportation-related projects. Soon we will be able to accept projects related to decarbonization of transportation, such as related to behavioral changes, electrification of transportation, etc.

☑  Project date: completed as of 2017. If you have not done any reduction projects yet, a willingness to do so in the future is essential to participate in the project.

☑  Organizational vision and values: finally, only organizations wishing to integrate an eco-responsible approach are concerned. 

Do you meet the eligibility criteria? Contact us! We look forward to welcoming you among our GHG-reducing members! Together, we are reconciling the economy with environmental and community action! 

Your other benefits for becoming a GHG-reducing member at Will Solutions

Be part of a community of committed and virtuous players

I want to realize environmental projects, but I don’t know where to start.

We are here to help! First of all, have you already measured your carbon emissions? If not, this is usually the first step.

Why is this important? Because to be effective in your carbon reduction projects, it is essential to have a complete carbon footprint on your emissions, which will constitute your carbon reference year. From this, you will benefit from overall visibility on your emissions, on the main sources of emissions and on the best reduction actions to take.

You can also contact us directly, we will be able to guide you and transform your organization into a leader in the regenerative economy!

FAQ: GHG reductions (Sustainable Communities)

1. What is the Sustainable Community and why should I join?

In order to accelerate the carbon reduction of companies, we bring them together under the same cluster project: the Will Solutions Sustainable Community.

By participating, you join an innovative movement that reconciles economic, social, and environmental concerns in virtuous local communities.

In addition to the carbon revenues you receive on a regular basis to fund other impactful projects, your involvement in the Sustainable Community allows you to quantify your reduction efforts and demonstrate your climate action.

As the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reminds us, reducing your emissions is a fundamental step in the fight against climate change and you can be proud of it. Moreover, your reductions allow you to create local carbon credits to enable buyers to act on their own scale.

In order to support you in your communications, we offer our members a media kit to talk about their commitments in a clear and attractive way.

2. Who is eligible to the Sustainable Community?

If you are based in Quebec, it is any organization not subject to the regulated carbon market (SPEDE).

If you are based in Ontario, there is no regulated carbon market (yet). It is then any company, NPO or municipality of any sector that has realized reduction projects or plans to realize some in the near future, in order to monetize their GHG reduction efforts.

We strongly recommend performing a carbon footprint measurement (for a fee) before joining the Sustainable Community and repeating the procedure at least once every 5 years.

3. Which projects are eligible for the Sustainable Community and therefore for conversion into carbon credits ?

The carbon footprint is used to calculate an organization’s emissions and identify GHG reduction projects, eligible or not for the Sustainable Community.

Therefore, we strongly recommend that you conduct a carbon footprint to determine whether or not your projects are eligible for the Sustainable Community.

The categories of eligible reduction projects are waste detour from landfill, energy conversion & efficiency and soon transportation optimization projects. Our methodology does not accept projects related to sequestration.

Do you have a doubt about the eligibility of one of your projects? Contact us! We will be happy to help.

4. How long before I receive my first carbon income? 

It can take between 10 and 14 months to convert to carbon credits, and we make revenue distributions every year. As of 2024, we will make revenue distributions every quarter.

Each micro-project that remains active, supported by supporting documentation, will be able to be quantified on an annual basis until December 31, 2029.

Indeed, Will has renewed its Sustainable Community for Quebec project for a second period covering 2020-2029.

If after this date, the reduction project is not considered a current practice, it will be eligible for carbon credits for the following 10 years and so on.

5. Can I cancel my Sustainable Community membership easily?

Yes, just inform us by email, form or phone. The cancellation is of course free of charge.

Monetize your carbon reductions and get paid for your good environmental actions
