ACc quest for
carbon credits

A carbon credit is given to one unit of one ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). The retirement of the carbon credit is considered the final phase of its lifecycle as they become offsets. Achieving carbon credits is possible through investing in our offsetting projects that avoid or remove CO2 from the atmosphere. ACC provides high quality verified carbon credits from voluntary projects in 12 Least Developed Countries (LDC) in Western Africa.

High quality carbon credits

We can precisely estimate the carbon reductions and constantly assess and monitor our project’s results and benefits.

We guarantee measurable, certified, tangible results and long-term benefits with our carbon credits.

Our carbon offsetting projects generate high-level carbon credits and offer co-benefits that go beyond carbon reduction or removal from biodiversity, social, economic, and educational value.

ACC guarantees that all projects are following five carbon credits principles

Additionality

No projects without revenue from carbon credits.

Verification

Monitored, reported, and verified by global third parties.

Permanence

No reversal actions to carbon reduction or removal.

Measurability

Calculations according to scientific data and methodologies.

Leakage avoidance

Control emissions from leaking elsewhere.
