Precious Woods Carbon & Energy

The Precious Woods Carbon & Energy business segment comprises the trading of CERs and the operation of the biomass power plant MIL Energia Renovável in Itacoatiara, Brazil. After a partial ownership since 2012, Precious Woods took over 100 % of the shares again in May 2021. PW Amazon’s sawmill is the sole biomass supplier of the power plant. The plant is listed as a climate-relevant project also because diesel was replaced by biomass and thus renewable energy. The project complies with the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol. The resulting emission certificates have been traded since 2011 by the myclimate1 foundation on behalf of Precious Woods.

1 myclimate is a Switzerland-based organization set up in 2002 to provide environmentally responsible solutions to individuals and companies.
