Successful Issuance of UPM’s Sichuan Household Biogas PoA 2019 Gold Standard CERs

UPM’s Sichuan Rural Poor-Household Biogas Development Programme (CDM PoA 2898, GS 1239) successfully obtained its eighth issuance of Gold Standard CERs covering the year 2019. After deduction of the share of proceeds to support CDM and Gold Standards operations and contribute to climate change adaptation activities, 673,544 premium-quality GS CERs will be available for sale.

Recently, the PoA had renewed its crediting period under CDM and GS until 10th of April 2026. 

Vintage 2019 sees a slight decrease in the quantity of Emission Reduction achieved due to the porcine flu epidemic in China. The Sichuan Household Biogas PoA remains one of the leading household biogas programmes globally for its emissions reductions and overall contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To date, it has achieved a reduction of almost 6.7 million tCO2e.

The issuance of vintage 2020 GS CERs from this high-impact climate protection programme is expected for the second quarter of 2022.
