Social benefits of carbon reduction projects
The special thing about the GoClimateAction's carbon reduction projects is their additional focus on social benefits beyond the reduction of greenhouse gases. All of our carbon reduction projects aim to create a wide array of social benefits and values for the local population.
The Gold Standard for the Global Goals has even made additional social benefits a condition for carbon reduction projects to be allowed to carry the Gold Standard label. This is why we are supporting many Gold Standard projects as well.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals from 2015
The social benefits achieved by our carbon reduction projects can be measured by the target grid of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which were adopted by the United Nations in 2015. These provide a framework for the various categories of sustainable development on our planet.
By adopting the SDGs, the global community has committed itself to 17 global goals for a future worth living. The goals underline the shared responsibility of all players: politics, business, science, civil society - and each and every one of us.
