In February 2016 WWF-UK commissioned a study from the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) into the supply and sustainability of carbon credits and alternative fuels for international aviation.
The temporal scope of the study is 2020-2035, which is the expected first term of the global market-based measure (MBM) to address carbon emissions from international aviation under development in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In this booklet, titled “Greener Skies? Supply and Sustainability of Carbon Credits and Alternative Fuels for International Aviation”, WWF-UK summarises the key conclusions of the SEI research, and presents additional context and recommendations for policymakers and airlines.
On page 9 of this report UPM’s “Sichuan Rural Poor-Household Biogas PoA” is presented as an exemplary case study for a high quality carbon offset project with large sustainable development benefits.
