Only 9% of all climate protection projects involve carbon removal
Looking at data from over 4,500 certified carbon avoidance and removal projects across five certifying standards, we investigated the current state of the carbon market with regard to technologies, geographies, prices, and available credit volumes. Although removal credits are at least twice the price of avoidance credits, removal credits often provide a better value for money when factoring in permanence and additionality. The outstanding stocks of voluntary credits show a remaining buffer of nature-based avoidance but continued scarcity across other credit types.
