WHAT ARE CARBON CREDITS?
Carbon Credits are produced by farmers under several protocols including Zero Tillage Farming practices and Nitrogen Emission Management programs, with more programs to be announced soon. Essentially, farmers can do their part to aid in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by observing certain standards that reduce CO2 emissions, and in exchange, sell those carbon credits back to heavy industry to ‘offset’ their own emissions. These best practices do a lot to help the environment, and are a real financial benefit to farmers!
Currently, these programs are only available to Alberta Farmers, but legislation is in the works for other jurisdictions in Canada, including Saskatchewan, and AGRI-TREND will be the first to bring these opportunities to our wide network of clients.
