How can you sell carbon credits?

To sell carbon credits, it is essential to understand how the voluntary carbon market works and to know the process of such an investment.

Understanding carbon marketplaces

The voluntary carbon market opens up a path for companies and individuals who want to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon offset credits finance clean development projects and support a low-carbon economy. They offer economic, environmental, and social benefits, such as an improved brand image, competitive advantages, workforce commitment and access to new markets.

The voluntary market also stimulates innovation by encouraging clean technology research & development and job creation. It also has a positive impact on the well-being of local businesses and communities.

The process of selling carbon credits

Selling your credits involves following a specific process, all supported by our services, which includes:

  • accessibility to the voluntary carbon market
  • quantifying the GHG emissions reductions
  • verification and certification by a third party registry
  • promoting and selling the credits on the voluntary markets

This process ensures the transparency and integrity of the transactions on the carbon market, aligning with stringent regulation and operational standards.

Why monetize your carbon credits?

This monetization offers many economic and environmental benefits. It lets you:

  1. Reach carbon knowledge and disclosure about your yearly GHG emission reductions
  2. Generate green and recurring carbon revenue
  3. Promote greenhouse gas emissions reductions efforts
  4. Develop new ecological projects in a virtuous circle for your company and the environment

 

The economic benefits of selling carbon credits

Selling carbon offset credits allows firms to generate revenue from their GHG emissions reduction efforts. This revenue is reinvested in new projects related in particular to energy consumption or waste management and landfill detour, which helps finance the green transition of companies.

 

Environmental and social impact of monetizing carbon credits

Beyond the economic benefits, selling voluntary credits also has a positive social and environmental impact. It encourages and finances the implementation of different types of projects related to gas emissions reduction and the optimization of various energy systems to promote a greener and more sustainable economy. Carbon monetization also impacts corporate governance and decision-making toward low-carbon business management by making decarbonization accessible, even profitable.

What are the conditions for selling carbon credits?

To sell voluntary credits, it is necessary to meet certain conditions and follow a specific process over a certain period. These conditions take into account various factors.

Eligibility criteria for selling carbon credits

First, it is essential to have a recent base year for measuring carbon dioxide emissions. This serves as a basis for calculating GHG reductions by comparison, following international calculation methodologies. You have not produced your corporate carbon footprint yet? We are here to help.

To be eligible for selling credits, a carbon offset project must generate carbon emissions reductions that are:

  • real
  • measurable
  • verifiable
  • unique and serializable
  • going beyond current practices

The project must also respect the principles of additionality permanence and conservative estimation.

As a carbon facilitator, we take care of all this and offer you a turnkey solution.

Selling carbon credits is an approach that offers many opportunities, both economic and environmental. We support you every step of the way at Will Solutions to allow you to monetize your greenhouse gas emissions reduction efforts. Our goal is to guide you through this period of transition, ensuring your projects meet the necessary factors for success in the carbon market.

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 reduced. Finally, we market them on the voluntary markets, where they are bought by companies, organizations, and individuals who voluntarily commit to achieving carbon neutrality, and to support your ecological projects and your green transition.

More details on your carbon revenues
  • The more GHG reduction projects you carry out, the more money you make;
  • 45% of revenues are paid back to you in cash on the sale of your carbon credits;
  • 35% of revenues cover our service fees. For you, this means no out-of-pocket expenses and a protected cashflow;
  • 20% are retained by Will Solutions as gross margin;
  • Example: you carry out an eligible project that reduces 5000 tons of GHG. Assuming we have sold all of your carbon credits each year, and that the average selling price (prices observed in 2022) of your carbon credits is 14$ CA: 5000 * 14 * 45% = 31 500$ per year, every year.

The selling price of GHG reductions also depends on a number of criteria, such as supply and demand (according to McKinsey, demand for carbon credits will increase 10-fold by 2030 compared to 2020), project location and changes in carbon regulations.

How to be rewarded for my GHG reduction projects?

Do you want to decarbonize your activities and receive funding? Various types of GHG reduction projects are possible, for multiple sectors and types of businesses.

Find out the eligibility criteria to become a carbon reducer member at Will Solutions!

See the eligibility criteria

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

☑  Buildings: Must own or manage at least one physical building. This can be any type of building: commercial, institutional, agricultural, industrial, logistics, etc. For example, a business with an agricultural greenhouse is eligible. However, a 100% digital business without physical offices is not eligible.

☑  Types of projects: Currently, there are two types of eligible emission reduction projects at Will Solutions:

  1. Energy conversion or efficiency projects. An energy conversion generally involves switching from a fossil fuel source to a less polluting energy source. Switching from heating oil to wind energy is an example of an energy conversion.
  2. Waste management projects that prevent landfilling or methane emissions. There are many applications, such as recycling instead of landfilling, composting, reintegrating waste into the production chain, selling residual materials to a buyer for their revaluation, switching to a recyclable raw material, etc.
  3. Coming soon: Projects related to transport. Soon, we will be able to accept projects related to the decarbonization of transport, such as those related to behavioral changes, electrification of transport, etc.

☑  Project date: implemented from January 1, 2015 to date. If you have not yet carried out reduction projects, it is essential to have the will to carry out some in the future to participate in the project.

☑  Vision and organizational values: finally, only organizations wishing to adopt an eco-responsible approach are eligible.

Implementing decarbonation activities: where to start?

We’re here to help! First off, have you already measured your carbon emissions? If not, that’s generally the first step.

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

FAQ: GHG reductions (Sustainable Communities

1. What is the Sustainable Community and why join it?

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

By participating, you join an innovative movement that reconciles the economy, society and the environment in virtuous local communities.

In addition to carbon revenues, your commitment to the Sustainable Community will give you access to carbon knowledge (customized reduction opportunities, quantification of your annual reduction efforts, data and reports) to effectively communicate your eco-responsibility.

As the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) reminds us, reducing your emissions is a fundamental step in the fight against climate disruption, and one of which you can be proud. What’s more, your reductions help to create local carbon credits, enabling buyers to take financial action.

2. Who is eligible for the Sustainable Community?

Any business not subject to the regulated carbon market (SPEDE), any municipality, any non-profit organization with eligible reduction projects (projects to divert residual materials from landfill, energy conversion & efficiency projects, and soon transport projects) can join the Sustainable Community for free to monetize their GHG reduction efforts.

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

3. Which projects are eligible for carbon financing?

The categories of eligible reduction projects include diversion of residual materials from landfill, conversion & energy efficiency, and soon transport optimization projects. Our methodology does not accept projects related to sequestration (tree plantation and forest conservations).

Our carbon footprint measurement service not only calculates an organization’s emissions, but also identifies GHG reduction projects that may or may not be eligible for the Sustainable Community.

We therefore strongly recommend that you carry out a carbon footprint assessment to find out whether or not your projects are eligible for the Sustainable Community. Contact us to find out if you have any eligible initiatives!

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

The conversion to carbon credits can take between 10 and 14 months, and we make revenue distributions every year. Ultimately, our goal is to achieve quarterly income distributions.

Each micro-project that remains active, supported by documentary evidence to prove it, can be quantified on an annual basis until December 31, 2029.

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

If after this date, the reduction project is not considered a common practice, it can benefit from carbon credits for the following 10 years and so on.

5. Can I easily cancel my membership in the Sustainable Community?

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