Clean Development mechanism (CDM)
The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an arrangement under the Kyoto Protocol allowing industrialized countries with a greenhouse gas reduction commitment (called Annex 1 countries) to invest in projects that reduce emissions in developing countries as an alternative to more expensive emission reductions in their own countries. A crucial feature of an approved CDM carbon project is that it has established that the planned reductions would not occur without the additional incentive provided by emission reductions credits, a concept known as "additionally".

The CDM allows net global greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced at a much lower global cost by financing emissions reduction projects in developing countries where costs are lower than in industrialized countries. However, in recent years, criticism against the mechanism has increased.

The CDM is supervised by the CDM Executive Board (CDM EB) and is under the guidance of the Conference of the Parties (COP/MOP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

TBEC follows the policies of CDM and is proposing for carbon credit inspection called Certified Emission Reductions (CERs).

The CDM project cycle entails seven basic stages as shown in the following diagram.

Benefits of CDM
Environmental Benefits
- Reduces the amount of waste that occurs. - The development and transfer of clean technologies.
- Decreases the use of fossil fuels.  
- Improves the environment locally  
Economic Benefits - Reduces fuel cost - Stimulates national economy and increases economic stability
- Increases the use of agricultural products such as coconut, palm, sunflower as raw material for renewable energy projects, thus increasing energy production from indigenous sources. - Revenue from corporate income tax.
- Stimulates economic community and creates employment.  
Social Benefits
- People have a better quality of life. Especially health, because of the less pollution. - Promotes sustainable development
