The PAROC Natura Lana compensation is used to support the Gold Standard Gyapa cookstove and Delhi Metro projects. As well as helping in the fight against climate change, every Gold Standard-certified project supports sustainable development and climate security as well as additional impact to the health and well-being of local communities.
The essence of this project is that the carbon footprint of people travelling by metro is much lesser than that of the same journeys performed by other modes of transport i.e. private vehicles. The non-metro modes of transport are not only less efficient in terms of fuel economy but also are more polluting.
The project involves implementation of energy efficiency measures in selected stations of the Delhi Metro in India. The project also contributes to sustainable development for the wellbeing of the country in terms of environment and socio-economic benefits.
In the project situation the metro complements other modes of transport and replaces partially trips made by conventional or traditional means of transit by metro. Metro, being a more efficient, faster, safer and more reliable transport means. Emission reductions are achieved through reducing GHG emissions per passenger-kilometer, comparing conventional modes of transport with metro.
