Reducing greenhouse gases such as CO2 benefits everyone. As a landowner, these carbon offset methods can make you extra income. And this income is not contingent upon you making radical changes to your land, as it is already storing carbon naturally.
Reducing greenhouse gases such as CO2 benefits everyone. As a landowner, these carbon offset methods can make you extra land is proving to be valuable for biological carbon sequestration, mainly in soil. Soil carbon sequestration, also known as “carbon farming” or “regenerative agriculture”, is the act of removing carbon from the environment to store in soil beneath land. Scientists have estimated that soils, mostly agricultural ones, could sequester over a billion additional tons of carbon each year.ncome. And this income is not contingent upon you making radical changes to your land, as it is already storing carbon naturally.
Emitters of greenhouse gases such as CO2 are having to comply with government regulations to reduce emissions. Therefore, it’s these companies who are looking to pay landowners like you for your carbon credits.
How many carbon credits you can earn will depend mainly on the size of your land, the soil conditions (as mentioned above) and tree cover, as carbon dioxide is also stored in trees. Climate, such as temperature and moisture, also play a large role, as rainfall will help increase the input of carbon to soil and will be more valuable than soil in dry climates.
We are proud to prove, together with the project landowner, that quality, verified, carbon farming from native forest conservation can provide a good economic alternative to deforestation. To avoid further deforestation in the Paraguayan Chaco, we need solutions that can be implemented immediately, can scale and are bankable for all parties involved.
DGB has a pipeline of 9 projects on 10 different locations and forecasts to generate over 6 million tonnes of carbon offsets in H2 2021.
Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration aims to rapidly restore declining chimpanzee habitat in Bulindi, Uganda, through active afforestation.
This investment in what is a sustainable forest management process also helps conserve water in one of Kenya’s key catchment areas.
The project has multiple locations, however, most of the trees are planted in three villages in the Yoko Sub Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon spanning an area of 2,300 – 3,000 hectares.
