The name of a project refers to the title or label given to it by its proponent (the person or organization responsible for the project). This name is used to identify and refer to the project within the Global Carbon Standard (GCS) registry. The name is typically a brief, descriptive label that summarizes the main aspects of the project, such as its location, the type of emissions reduction taking place, or the proponent's name. The name is usually provided by the proponent when the project is first registered with the GCS registry, and it is usually unique to that project. The name is important because it provides a clear and simple reference point for all market participants to identify the project, and also to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin.
