Ghana is underselling its climate services: CarrZee plus Garside

CarrZee: Corresponding adjustments are worth more than $5/ton

#Ghana has imposed a $3/t or $5/t levy on corresponding adjustments for exported carbon credits.

The stated fees represent a substantial sum, given that standardised carbon credits are trading below $3 each in the voluntary market, even if post-2020 vintages are priced higher.

Is this a premium that government or private sector buyers will be prepared to pay for correspondingly adjusted credits?

(particularly as – in Ghana’s case – the government allows for voluntary credits with no adjustments, with officials telling us at Carbon Pulse that the government was prepared to balance the risk of double claiming and undercutting its fee structure for increased project coverage)
