Registration date

Registration date refers to the date when a project is officially registered with the Global Carbon Standard (GCS) registry. This date is important because it marks the beginning of the certification process and it also serves as a reference point for tracking the progress of the project over time. The registration date 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 the time frame of the projects that are registered and also to understand how long the project has been in operation. It also helps to track and verify the authenticity of the carbon debits and their origin. The registration date is also used to determine the starting date of the carbon debit, which marks the beginning of the period for which emissions reductions from the project can be credited.
