While establishing EvaStore, we primarily aimed to help all users who want to reduce carbon emissions in our world, with just a few steps. By purchasing carbon credits from our store with various payment methods, users will be able to support projects that reduce carbon emissions around the world. In addition, by purchasing Carbon credits through EvaChain with their $EVAs, they will help us realize our “strategies” and complete carbon emission reduction projects carried out around the world. We will use all aid funds collected through EvaLabs to complete projects to reduce carbon emissions and end the climate crisis published on EvaStore.

Carbon credits are emission reduction units used to communicate each tonne of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas reduction made by an activity that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. These credits are called Verified Emission Reduction (VER). The definition of greenhouse gas emission reduction represented by these credits, also known as carbon offset certificates, is made with reference to an activity with an equivalent capacity of greenhouse gas emissions.
Carbon credits (certificates) are earned by projects that reduce different types of greenhouse gases (such as CO2, CH4, N2O) in the following categories. We can give examples such as agriculture, chemical process/industrial production, forestry and land use, transportation, renewable energy, energy efficiency/fuel replacement, waste disposal.
The creation of carbon credits can be explained with a simple example. For example, let's say that a wind power plant project produces electricity with a capacity of 90 MW. If the electricity production of the same capacity (90 MW) had been realized with a fossil fuel power plant project, there would have been 190 thousand tons of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas emissions from this generation activity in a certain time period. The amount of emission that the Wind Power Plant Project does not produce in the determined relevant time period is expressed as the negative emission amount of this project and the certification process is made per each negative ton of emission. In this case, the Wind Power Plant Project can win 190 thousand VER certificates. The EvaLabs will continue to regularly reduce its carbon emissions by purchasing carbon credits.
The first step to helping prevent the climate crisis starts with knowing your impact on the climate crisis. Then it is about making an effort to reduce this effect as much as possible. Finally, you can take action by supporting the Evadore Ecosystem, which is fighting the climate crisis.
