mitiGate

We help schools and businesses to examine carbon reductions and solutions, covering the role of management, technology, and innovation in your operational environment and the interactions of other drivers (e.g. stakeholders’ expectation, competition, and marketing) with New Zealand’s targets of climate change. During this process, our rich experiences in the evaluation of the feasibility and implementation of carbon reduction projects will contribute to your carbon achievements in the most effective and efficient way.

Feasibility Studying

Selecting the desired reduction potentials from our carbon footprint analysis report (Customer)

Analysing the proposed reduction measure(s) to support smart planning (Greenfield)

  • financial: cost-and-benefit analysis, IRR estimation (internal rate of return) and etc.
  • technical: reliability, accessibility, maintainability, risk and etc.
  • operational: national and regional policies, management framework, operational procedure (control, efficiency, and services) and etc.
  • schedule: timeline estimation, resources optimising and etc.

Communicating the feasibility study with top management (Greenfield leads)

Emission Reduction Planning

  • Developing a statement of vision for a period of time on your carbon management (e.g. reduce a percentage of carbon emissions during the period of years) (Greenfield leads)

  • Designing the emission reduction projects/measures implementation plan (Greenfield)

  • Estimating the emission reductions (Greenfield)

  • Designing project monitoring plan (Greenfield)

  • Implementing and reporting according to the project design and monitor plan (Greenfield)

Continual Improving

  • Training to improve your employees’ awareness, and understanding of the carbon management targets (Greenfield)

  • Supporting operational control (Greenfield)

  • Monitoring the reduction measures and projects (Greenfield)

  • Finding noncompliance and corrective and preventive action (Greenfield)

  • Guiding the emission reduction purchase when necessary (e.g., ERPA negotiation, reduction sourcing and technical review) (Greenfield leads, extra fees applies)

  • Supporting 3rd party audit and certificating process if necessary (Greenfield, extra fees apply)

Case Studies

Vitol is a Dutch private company specialised in energy and commodity trading. In addition to the global crude and product trading businesses, the company trades coal, natural gas, power, carbon emissions, and other commodities.

Greenfield supports Vitol to screen qualified carbon emissions credits all over the world from the technical perspective, especially on the additionality and the estimated credit amount of the project.

Capability: Carbon Credit Sourcing, Additionality (Technical & Economic), Credit Estimation, Monitoring, Emission Factor Development

Additionality is essential for the quality of carbon offset credits – if their associated GHG reductions are not additional, then purchasing offset credits in lieu of reducing your own emissions will make climate change worse. GHG reductions are additional if they would not have occurred in the absence of a market for offset credits. If the reductions would have happened anyway – i.e., without any prospect for project owners to sell carbon offset credits – then they are not additional.

EDF is a British integrated energy company with operations spanning electricity generation and the sale of natural gas and electricity to homes and businesses throughout the United Kingdom.

Greenfield supports EDF to screen qualified carbon emissions credits all over the world from the technical perspective, especially on the additionality and the estimated credit amount of the project.

Capability: UNFCCC, Gold Standard, Review of Feasibility Study, Review of Environmental Impact, ERPA

ERPA is an Emissions Reduction Purchase Agreement that is a legal contract between entities that buy and sell carbon credits. The standards for ERPAs are outlined by the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA), a nonprofit created in 1999 to serve businesses engaged in trading carbon credits.
