C’est avec grand plaisir et enthousiasme que Martin Clermont, PDG de Gedden annonce une nouvelle méthodologie VCS ouvrant l’accès au marché du carbone pour les petits émetteurs de gaz à effet de serre. Il s’agit d’une percée unique pour le marché du carbone. En effet, la méthodologie VM0018 Energy Efficiency and Solid Waste Diversion Activities within a Sustainable Community permettant l’accès au marché du carbone pour les entreprises qui émettent peu de gaz à effet de serre (GES) a été approuvée sous le standard VCS (Verified Carbon Standard). Ceci constitue une dix-huitième méthodologie VCS mondialement reconnue sur le marché volontaire du carbone et applicable internationalement.
