Inclusion in The Climate Registry will improve transparency, trust in
TORONTO, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Toronto-based carbon offset company CarbonZero
has high praise for Ontario's growing commitment to fighting climate change,
particularly its recent decision to join The Climate Registry.
"With the decision to join The Climate Registry, Ontario joins the
majority of US states and four other member Canadian provinces in developing a
necessary means of measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions," said
Kate Holloway, President and CEO of CarbonZero Offsets.
Based in California, The Climate Registry is a collaboration between
states, provinces and tribes aimed at developing and managing a common
greenhouse gas emissions reporting system. The Registry will provide for an
accurate, complete, consistent, transparent and verified set of greenhouse gas
emissions data. Ontario has now joined British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec, and
Saskatchewan, forty American states, three Native American tribes and one
Mexican state who currently comprise The Registry.
"Precise emissions disclosure is integral to carbon accounting and is
imperative to the mitigation of global warming. This decision by the Ontario
government will improve the quality of and public trust in the North American
carbon reductions market," said Holloway.
CarbonZero Offsets is a carbon offsetting company providing high quality
carbon offsets to individuals, businesses and organizations who voluntarily
choose to neutralize their emissions, and to companies with
government-mandated emissions reductions.
