To enhance public awareness and promote voluntary participation in GHG mitigation activities, the Carbon Neutral Program was introduced in 2008. Companies and individuals who want to mitigate their carbon emission submit their intent to participate and then perform actions to reduce GHG emissions, such as turning off lights, lowering heating temperatures, and using public transportations etc. Offsets, including forestation and NRE deployment, are also options for carbon mitigation. After Participants' completion of activities to reduce GHG emissions, KEMCO confirms that the person or company has successfully participated in the Carbon Neutral Program by issuing a certificate.
Two types of Carbon offsets
As of 2012, a total of 6,340 firms/individuals have participated in CO2 mitigation activity equivalent to 68,670,393 kgCO2 since the initiation of the program.
