PACE centre services and track-record
PACE was established in 2004. Since then we have explored various ways of making the global carbon market work in Africa - and particularly to work for poor people in Africa. The Credible Carbon™ registry, the first of its kind in Africa, seeks to structurally alter the way in which poverty alleviating carbon projects are brought to the market.
In 2011 Credible Carbon sold over 11 000 tCO2 and returned more than R700,000 in carbon revenue to poverty-alleviating projects in southern Africa. In 2012 we did even better, selling nearly 41 000 tCO2 to over 100 different clients and returning R1,7 million to local projects. Our top sales price in 2012 was R250 per tCO2 and in last project we returned 91% of total carbon revenue to the project - that is after project proponent fees, legal fees and the cost of an indepenent audit.
PACE is a major project proponent to the Credible Carbon registry and enjoy their success. We are looking forward to 2013!
Just back from COP17. An impressive event both in terms of scale and content. Not confident about a legally binding, fair and urgent agreement but more hope than a week ago. Impressive none the less to see how many committed people are working on a range of inspiring issues.
