Achieving Carbon Neutrality through Offsetting Partnerships

Description:Under the current BC Climate Action Charter, many water sector utilities are actively seeking ways to achieve carbon neutrality. In my presentation, I discuss and diagram the opportunities of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction projects within the urban water cycle as well as discuss how partnering with offsetting companies could assist in funding these projects – especially considering the indications that the BC government is reducing or eliminating the Pacific Carbon Trust. My presentation quantifies the scales of opportunity for GHG reduction in terms of overall project cost and cost per tonne CO2 reduced. I then present how $/tonne reductions from GHG programs provides a market incentive for utilities to fund overall energy management programs. My presentation concludes by illustrating several project examples and providing a rough order of estimate of quantity and relative costs for GHG reductions for each.
