CDM = Clean Development Mechanism
JI = Joint Implementation
CHA = Swiss attestation (domestic offset scheme)
Article 4, para. 2 of the CO2 Ordinance sets quality requirements for emission reductions achieved abroad that may be counted in accordance with the CO2 Act. These quality requirements must be fully met when the certificates are counted toward the emitter's commitments.
This list contains the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI) projects that meet the requirements set out in the CO2 Ordinance. The FOEN will continuously complete the list with projects newly registered with the UNFCCC that meet the requirements.
Units with certain serial numbers from projects on the whitelist do not meet the requirements of the revised CO2 Regulation, as these units have already been used and recycled by 2010 under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. The list of the units concerned can be found on the FOEN website.
For Programms of Activities (PoAs) of the CDM, please read carefully the information under “country code”. Only units from PoAs for which the host country fulfills the quality requirements of the Ordinance are included in the whitelist. This is especially important for PoAs that have been registered as of 1st January 2013, to which the requirement regarding the host country applies.
Companies that wish to have ERU 'Track 1' emission reductions counted without being controlled by the Joint Implementation Supervisory Committee (JISC) must prove the date of the emission reduction by means of a verification report. The verification report is subject to review by an accredited independent entity under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in accordance with decision 9/CMP.1 ('Accredited Independent Entity', AIE). Emission reductions that meet these conditions are not included on this list because their eligibility is determined once the abovementioned documentation has been submitted.
If you have questions or cannot find a project on the list, please contact SwissFlex (firstname.lastname@example.org).
