Chinese climate product is an emerging trading category, including carbon emissions trading, green certificates, new energy vehicle quotas, energy rights and ecological asset accounting, etc. The combination of climate product market and finance is a tool to, on the one hand, realize the emission reduction bookkeeping, and on the other hand, complete the emission reduction plan promised by China through the market mechanism.
RUIDE entered the climate product market in 2009. By December 31, 2020,
  • a total of 287 projects in the primary and secondary markets

RUIDE has participated in China's carbon trading market since 2014,
it has grew into one of the largest carbon trading service providers in China.
By the end of 2020, RUIDE has obtained the memberships of all the emission rights exchanges in China, including Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Fujian, Guangdong, Hubei and Sichuan, with more than 40 million tons of carbon traded and a transaction amount exceeding RMB1 billion.RUIDE is also one of the largest domestic developers of products such as CCERs, forest carbon sinks, VCS-labeled CCB standard afforestation carbon sinks, and Tanpuhui, with carbon emission reduction rights reserves exceeing 15 million tons/ year.


  • RUIDE has the most professional team in carbon asset management and carbon finance. With our CCERs trading and replacement, carbon quota and other trading solutions, RUIDE helps control companies to reduce future carbon quota price fluctuations triggered by the performance cost and risk, while meeting the carbon-based financing needs of emission control companies.
  • By the end of 2020, RUIDE has traded more than 40 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent, serving nearly 200 key emission institutions.
  • China Certified Emissions Reduction (CCERs) are officially recognized as the most feasible
  • trading target as the supplement to the carbon quota market. The CCERs projects developed by RUIDE has more than 80% new projects and the carbon emission reduction equity reserves exceed 15 million tons/year.

China Certified
Reduction (CCERs)


  • It is the process to reduce the concentration, activities or mechanism of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by planting afforestation, forest management, vegetation restoration and other measures to absorb carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through plant sunlight cooperation before fixing it in vegetation and soil.
  • RUIDE is committed to developing forest carbon sink projects in China, covering an area of approximately 2.4 million mu. In response to the spirit of Saihanba, RUIDE assisted Saihanba Forest Farm (winner of UN Champions of the Earth) to obtain the carbon sink revenue.
  • VCS-labeled CCB is a standard to define the impact of forestry carbon sink projects on the local climate, community and biodiversity of the project under the international voluntary emission reduction mechanism.
  • The VCS-labeled CCB afforestation project developed by RUIDE covers an area of 2.4 million mu, while the average annual emission reduction during the project life cycle is about 3.2 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. As China's largest operator in the VCS labeling CCB primary and secondary market , RUIDE plans to add 16 million acres of VCS labeling CCB projects by the end of 2021.

  • As a brand-new carbon trading mechanism in the carbon market, Tanpuhui encourages community households and individuals to save energy and reduce carbon.
  • RUIDE and UnionPay have worked together to provide incentives for green travel, encourage users to use QuickPass when take public transportation, donate the proceeds of emission reduction to the elementary school in Longchuan County, Guangdong Province.
Green Certificate
Issuance and voluntary trading of renewable energy power certificates
are encouraged both at home and abroad

Domestic Green Certificate /
Renewable Energy Certificate

In 2017, to improve the new energy industry system and promote the withdrawal of subsidies, Notice on the Trial Implementation of the Renewable Energy Green Power Certificate Issuance and Voluntary Subscription Transaction System is issued by the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance and the National Energy Administration.

RUIDE has effectively reduced the overall cost of purchasing green energy for enterprises through the green certificate renewable energy certificate project.

Plastic Trading Rights

(Implemented by US VERRA)

Founded in 2005, VERRA is a voluntary emission reduction platform jointly established by Fortune 500 companies. It is aimed to convert the emission reductions of MRV greenhouse gases

Plastic trading right is served as a global standard for the recycling and reuse of plastic waste.

  • It’s aimed to develop trading rights regulations and systems for plastic recycling and reuse projects
  • Establish a plastic trading mechanism, encouraging companies to recycle and reuse plastic waste more effectively
Ecological asset accounting
Ecological asset accounting requires clear administrative boundaries
Generally calculated each calendar year
It is generally believed that ecological asset accounting includes two aspects: direct and indirect value accounting. The accounting method is based on the gross Ecosystem Production (GEP) accounting or natural resource balance sheet.

Gross Ecosystem Product (GEP)

  • Calculate according to the type of ecosystem, taking products and services as the unit
  • 7 ecosystems: Forest, wetland, grassland, desert, ocean, farmland, city
  • Three values: ecosystem product value, ecological regulation service value, ecological cultural service value

Balance Sheet of Natural Resources

  • Perform accounting per account by types of natural resources
  • Three categories of resources: land, forest, water (balance sheet of explorable mining deposit and other resources in different areas )
  • Two accounts: physical account, value account
