Evaluate project categories
CNaught’s portfolios are made up of four different categories of project types, which build on a paradigm laid out in the Oxford Principles. Each category has its own strengths and weaknesses. Understanding those strengths and weaknesses allows us to design a portfolio that accounts for them.
The categories of projects vary across two axes: whether they avoid emissions vs. remove carbon and how long they store carbon.
Because category III is largely theoretical at this time, with very few projects offering this type of credit, CNaught portfolios are a blend of categories I, II, IV, and V.Learn more
