KlimaschutzprojekteHow is duplicate Counting avoided in Germany?


If an activity planned as a JI project leads to emission reductions in an installation that is subject to emissions trading in Germany in compliance with the Emissions Trading Directive, these reductions cannot also be counted as additional emission reductions in the context of the JI project (Article 5 Section 1 Sentence 3 ProMechG).

No certificates will be issued for these emission reductions to participants of the JI projects.

The validation must state that no double counting will occur in the project activity.

These are the legal provisions preventing double counting in Germany.
