Early Action Projects

Background

Some voluntary offset projects that have been issued offset credits by approved voluntary registries for GHG reductions or removal enhancements that occurred between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2014 may be eligible to be issued ARB offset credits.  These projects are referred to as early action offset projects.  Early action offset projects must meet specific requirements in the Cap-and-Trade Regulation

The first step in the process is to list the early action offset project with ARB.  Once the listing information for an early action offset project has been submitted ARB will review it and the offset project will be listed below.  The listing information provides general information about the early action offset project.

In order for the early action offset credits to be eligible to become ARB offset credits, after listing they must undergo regulatory verification which includes an assessment of conflict of interest and a desk review to confirm the validity of the initial verification.  Upon satisfying the requirements in section 95990(c) of the Regulation, and successfully completing the regulatory verification process, applicants may request the issuance of ARB offset credits.  After the request has been made, ARB will conduct a full review of all project documents.  If the review shows conformance with the Regulation, ARB offset credits will be issued.  After issuance, information regarding the early action offset project, including number of ARB offset credits issued by vintage, and invalidation status will be made publicly available on this website.

More detailed information about the process for recognizing early action, including project eligibility, can be found in Section 6.14 of the ARB Instructional Guidance Document and in Subarticle 14 of the Cap-and-Trade Regulation.

The table below provides a list of early action offset projects that have been approved for listing.  This page will be updated periodically to reflect additional projects that have been approved for listing, or issuance of ARB offset credits to a project (select ARB Project ID#).  Holders of early action offset credits may use this information for contacting Offset Project Operators for transitioning their early action offset credits into ARB offset credits.
