The Great Bear (Haida Gwaii) Forest Carbon Project-Grandfathered under GGIRCA(ID: 104000000011559)
Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership BCCR
The objective of the project is to protect and increase carbon stocks by converting forests that were previously available for logging to protected forests, thereby protecting existing carbon stocks, reducing emissions caused by harvesting, road building and other forestry operations, and increasing the carbon stocks as the forest continues to grow.
The project proponent is a group of First Nations represented by the Council of Haida Nation, whose traditional territory is consistent with the project area. The Council of Haida Nation is part of the Great Bear Initiative Society (GBI) who represent First Nations on the North and Central Coast and Haida Gwaii.
The project plan for this project was originally validated under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act and has been accepted under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act transitional provision.
The BC Carbon Registry is established under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act. The BC Carbon Registry enables the issuance, transfer and retirement of compliance units used to fulfill the compliance obligation of regulated operations under the Act, and supports the Province of British Columbia’s annual commitment to have a carbon neutral public sector.
