Project Category Rule

A project category is a class of projects that perform a defined function, have shared characteristics, utilize comparable approaches or technologies, and have the ability to reduce emissions that are contributing to climate change, and their associated radiative forcing (RF). For each project category, a Project Category Rule (PCR) is established to govern the assessment of projects, including guidance to determine project boundaries, set baselines, assess additionality, and quantify the GWP-100 or RF reduction potential.
