The proponent of a project refers to the person or organization that is responsible for the project and that is seeking certification under the Global Carbon Standard (GCS). The proponent is typically the developer, owner, or operator of the project, and they are the ones who submit the project for registration and certification under the GCS. The proponent's information is recorded in the GCS registry along with the details of the project, such as its name, location, type of emissions reduction, and expected reductions in emissions. This information is important because it identifies the responsible party for the project, and also helps to ensure that the project meets the requirements of the GCS standard, and it is also used to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin.
