Ray C. Anderson Foundation - NextGen Committtee
Grant of $90,000 to a USA nonprofit to support environmental sustainability initiatives. Funding is intended for new or existing programs that would measurably reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, either by sequestering gases presently in the atmosphere or by preventing the emission of those gases.
The NextGen Committee will primarily judge proposals on the amount of estimated offset carbon, the quality of the calculations, and the likelihood of success at achieving the estimated carbon reductions. The Committee will secondarily consider the collateral environmental and social benefits of the project.
Pricing and Measuring CO2e
According to an Ecosystem Marketplace report, the average price per metric ton of CO2e offsets in voluntary markets in 2016 was $3 (though with wide variability ranging from less than $1 to more than $50 per metric ton). At $3 per metric ton, $90,000 would purchase 30,000 metric tons of CO2e offsets. The hope is that received proposals will be competitive with or exceed this amount of projected offset carbon.
Strong proposals must also demonstrate high-quality estimations of CO2e reductions. The Environmental Protection Agency has made available a greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator that may be useful in calculating these estimations. Note, however, that organizations may prefer to utilize a different CO2e calculator or estimate carbon savings in other ways. As long as an organization’s methodology for such estimations is clearly stated, applicants may utilize any tools they wish.
