GHG Project

From Open Risk Manual


A GHG Project is any specific activity or set of activities intended to[1]

  • reduce GHG Emissions
  • increase the storage of carbon, or
  • enhance GHG removals from the atmosphere.

The changes in GHG emissions, removals or storage are called GHG Project Effects. A GHG project may be a stand-alone project or a component of a larger non-GHG project, and may be comprised of one or more project activities.
