2010 Rating of Designated Operational Entities (DOEs) accredited under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)

Report for WWF - Corrected version

Designated Operational Entities (DOEs) are accredited independent entities responsible for ensuring that proposed projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) meet all requirements established by the CDM Executive Board operating under the Kyoto Protocol. In May 2009, Öko-Institut and WWF published a first rating of DOEs. The rating aims to provide transparent information to the market with regards to how well DOEs are fulfilling the requirements and expectations of the CDM Executive Board. This report updates the rating and in addition evaluates the current validation and verification process and provides recommendations for improvements.
