GGGI Technical Guideline No. 7
Mitigation Outcome Purchase Agreements
Purchase agreements are a common practice in all types of carbon markets, including voluntary and compliance markets. Some of the elements from Article 6 that might be reflected in the so-called Mitigation Outcome Purchase Agreements (MOPAs) include provisions related to corresponding adjustments (CAs), registries, safeguards, and authorization of transfer. GGGI Guideline to Mitigation Outcome Purchase Agreements provides a guide for anyone interested in learning the general purpose and structure of a MOPA as well as understanding both sides of the negotiation table, potential risks of terms and conditions, and the means to address these risks.
