ABSTRACT
The article discusses additionality in carbon reduction projects as of 2011. According to the author, carbon reduction credits should be awarded to greenhouse gas reduction initiatives that would not have been developed without them, and initiative certification standards should focus on sectoral rather than financial additionality. Topics include returns on investments and corruption.
