Environmental Justice Advocates
Emission offsets must be closely monitored to ensure they are real and not just crediting business-as-usual. Any non-additional credit effectively forces disadvantages communities living near emission sources to cope with GHG pollution while emitters avoid paying the full price of allowances and contributing to the State GHG Reduction Fund. The Quality Carbon Registry places the fair and equitable treatment of all peoples as a primary concern in the implementation of market based GHG programs.
