For the evaluation of Austrian climate protection projects, we use criteria that correspond to the standard for environmental support developed by the Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology. We assess these projects following the guidelines for environmental support used in Austria. They are described in the Environmental Support Act, the Guidelines for Domestic Environmental Support, and in information sheets (www.umweltfoerderung.at/detailinfo).
Furthermore, Climate Austria requires additional standards:
- The extent of the reduction must be clearly and unequivocally attributable to the project.
- Support by Climate Austria is the driving factor behind the project's implementation.
- The time span in which emission reductions are to be achieved by the project must be clearly defined.
