II. GIS Experience


Gis from the perspective of a governmental buyer experience expectations

GIS Experience (I)

  • GIS offers more flexibility to the host country and the investor country compared with JI

  • GIS offers the chance for revenues “up front” (after delivery of AAUs but before delivery of greening results)

  • There is a lot of preparatory workto accomplish in the host country before agreement on a binding contract can be reached

    • Art. 17 eligibility

    • legislative background, authorization to negotiate and sell on behalf of the host country

    • implementation of GIS management facility with sufficient capacity and resources

    • project/programme potential and pipeline

    • secondary legislation/tender documents (project selection process and criteria)

GIS Experience (II)

  • GIS is less standardized – contracts are tailored to the specific needs of the involved parties

  • Negotiations take longer than for JI/CDM deals and almost always longer than expected

  • AAUs are a politically sensitive asset – there are reputational risks for both Seller and Buyer country (activities are closely watched in the market)

  • This risk can be mitigated by high quality GIS scheme, maximum transparency and coordinated and joint communication

III. GIS Requirements and Expectations


Gis from the perspective of a governmental buyer experience expectations

GIS Requirements & Expectations (I)

  • Hard greening (money needs to be used for supporting projects/programmes that lead to direct and quantifiable GHG emission reductions)

  • Certain percentage of purchase price may be used for soft greening in terms of raising public awareness to ensure the efficiency and market penetration of the direct GHG emission reduction measures

  • Certain percentage of purchase price may be used for administrative costs of GIS management facility

  • Other environmental benefits (reduction in air, and water pollution etc.) and positive social impacts are welcome and provide additional incentive for buyers

GIS Requirements & Expectations (II)

  • Results are required to be monitored according to certain standards (in line with project size)

  • Traceability of Funds is essential (special budget line, managed disbursement of funds, escrow agent, auditing of reports etc.)

  • Reporting requirements and supervisory function of buyer

  • Clear and fair AAU-PA based on equal footing and risk sharing including (i) clear milestones with regard to spending funds for eligible projects/programmes and greening results and (ii) agreement on measures and remedies in case of non-compliance with milestones

  • Not AAUs are the asset but “greened AAUs”
