Ex-post issuance

Ex-post credits: On the other hand, "ex-post," also derived from Latin, means "after the event." Ex-post credits in the carbon market are issued after the emissions reductions or removals have already been achieved and independently verified by a third party. This means that these credits represent tangible, achieved reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The risk associated with ex-post credits is typically lower than with ex-ante credits because the emission reductions or removals they represent have already occurred.
