The carbon quick scan is a qualitative exercise to gain insight into the attractiveness of different carbon project opportunities. It is used before conducting a detailed feasibility assessment. It includes eight criteria that are important for the successful development of carbon projects and can be extended individually. If, for example, very specific criteria need to be considered, they can be added to the list and examined further. You can use the table format as a template and fill in your assessment of the criteria as bullet points or text.
