How Do Carbon Credits Work?
Alberta farmers have the opportunity to do their part to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by observing certain standards. These practices earn farmers ‘carbon credits’, which they can sell back to regulated industries to offset their emissions. These practices go a long way toward achieving compliance with international environmental standards and — with the right paperwork and data support — they can also put extra cash in farmers’ pockets!
Key benefits include:
- Getting paid for implementing sustainable farming practices
- Reducing your farm’s carbon footprint
- Aligning your farm with consumer demands
- Discovering new efficiencies that save you time and money
