Carbon debit end date

Carbon debit end date refers to the date when the issuance of carbon debits for a project that is certified under the Global Carbon Standard (GCS) will end. This date marks the end of the period for which emissions reductions from the project can be credited. The carbon debit end date is determined based on the lifetime of the project and it is recorded in the GCS registry along with the other information about the project, such as its name, proponent, project type, country, and annual CO2 absorption.

This information is important because it allows the GCS registry to track when the carbon debits can no longer be issued, and also to understand when the project stops providing emissions reductions. It also helps to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin. The carbon debit end date is determined by the independent third-party auditor and is based on the expected lifetime of the project and the expected emissions reductions that the project will achieve during this time.
