Additionality risks for this project type are low. Our analysis finds that revenues from carbon credits often boost internal rates of return significantly and help clearing financial benchmarks. However, we find that application of available quantification methodologies is likely to overestimate emissions reductions by about 10 to 30 percent and/or to involve  significant uncertainty. The project type uses best available technology and has a low risk of locking-in continuous greenhouse gas emissions. It has positive SDGs impacts on air, soil,
and water pollution.
