Ruby Canyon Engineering, Inc., a leading greenhouse gas (GHG) consulting and verification firm, is currently undergoing the accreditation process to become a Verification Body for California's AB 32 GHG cap-and-trade program, administered by the Air Resources Board (ARB). Ruby Canyon will conduct third-party verifications of ARB compliance offset credits, which can be used by compliance entities to meet up to eight percent of their GHG emission reduction obligations. Offset credits are emission reductions that occur outside of capped sectors and are seen as a key cost-containment measure for the program. Ruby Canyon will soon be accredited to verify offset projects that capture and destroy methane gas from livestock operations as well as projects that destroy ozone depleting substances.
Michael Cote, President of Ruby Canyon, says, "We are excited to participate in this new carbon market as an offset credit Verification Body for the AB 32 cap-and-trade program. We recognize the importance of California's pioneering program, and we look forward to ensuring the creation of high-quality offset credits that can be used by compliance entities in California."
