At Bluesource, we offer an array of mitigation project product types. Because not every mitigation credit suits every purpose, we ensure that our offerings are not only multifaceted and diverse, but also meet stringent criteria for standard, project type, additionality, public registration and third-party verification. Learn more about these attributes in Carbon Mitigation 101, or view the different types of Carbon Mitigation Projects we offer here.

On January 1, 2013 California’s cap and trade program for greenhouse gases, as part of the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB32), began its first compliance period. We have successfully sold a variety of mitigation credit product types for the program under a range of contractual structures to both compliance entities and financial intermediaries.
Among the product we provide are:
With the enactment of the Specified Gas Emitters Regulation(SGER) on July 1, 2007, Alberta became the first jurisdiction in North America to implement an economy-wide emission reduction program for facilities emitting over 100,000 tonnes CO2e per year. One of four compliance options permitted under the program is to use Alberta-based mitigation credits (31 different protocols) that meet the rigorous standards of the Alberta mitigation credit system and are serialized through the Alberta Emission Offset Registry (AEOR).
As the longest standing project developer and marketer of carbon mitigation credits in Alberta, Bluesource is the partner of choice for compliance buyers. Bluesource offers Alberta-compliant credits in biomass energy, biogas, biofuel production, engine fuel gas management, vent gas capture, enhanced oil recovery, acid gas injection and wind energy, in all major and industry-standard contract structures.
Long before any serious talks of North American compliance carbon markets began, we were actively serving the voluntary market – companies that seek to take action on climate change regardless of obligations or regulations. Such companies helped found and support the global carbon markets in their infancy stages and continue to be an important part of the carbon markets around the world.
Our portfolio of voluntary credits, often referred to as Verified Emission Reductions (VERs), allows voluntary mitigation credit buyers to select projects based on:
With mitigation projects located in almost all 50 States and most Canadian Provinces, we have over 20 different emission reduction technologies represented in our portfolio.
Bluesource offers both historical and forward vintages through year 2020 and beyond.
Looking for more than just greenhouse gas reduction? Many projects demonstrate other environmental and social benefits, including:
When greenhouse gas regulations are anticipated in jurisdictions that do not yet have them in place, market interest can develop for “pre-compliance” strategies. We continually assess new potential greenhouse gas markets and assist companies in developing and carrying out progressive pre-compliance strategies. Whether mitigating a potential carbon exposure or participating as a financial intermediary, we can help.
