The Registry

The SCS Global Registry is a groundbreaking  new platform and clearinghouse for the evaluation, registration and financing of projects aimed at stabilizing and restoring our shared global climate and environment.  We are particularly focused on projects that can yield significant results in this decade and the near-term.

The world's scientific community has become increasingly blunt in its warnings about the changing climate.  Strong, decisive action in this decade is needed to help the world avert the worst ravages of a warming planet.    

Putting People and Projects Together

Our focus is on projects that can effectively help slow the rise in global temperatures, in order to prevent an overshoot of the Paris Agreement’s 1.5°C threshold, and gradually restore balance toward more sustainable levels.

The time for action is now. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has forecast that the Earth could reach 1.5°C above normal as early as 2030, and has spotlighted major impacts, many irreversible, that will occur if the world slips past this target.

This Registry provides opportunities for governments, corporations, institutions, organizations, and individuals to directly support pivotal climate projects, through the purchase of offset or investment credits.

 

Roadmap to 2030

Thirty years ago, it might have been possible to tackle our climate change challenge by focusing exclusively on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. But while such strategies are essential to achieve long-term stability, they are now no longer enough.  

That's why, in addition to GHG reduction projects, the Registry considers projects that address the full set of factors identified by the IPCC as contributing to climate change, and also focuses on significant changes in this decade - before 2030 - as well as over longer timeframes.

Metrics Matter

Rising temperatures, deepening droughts, intensifying storms, and other climate impacts are the product of unprecedented disruption of the Earth-Atmosphere Energy Balance.  This disruption has created excessive heat, called "radiative forcing."  If we lower radiative forcing (RF) sufficiently, we can turn the corner on climate change.

This is vital. By training our sights on the reduction of RF, we can begin to get ahead of changes in temperature and other impacts, instead of playing catch up. Our job now is to incentivize projects of sufficient scale to reduce and eventually draw down RF, and to do so with our eyes open to avoid causing unintended harm to people or the planet.
