Agricultural Offsets: Reducing Transaction Costs and Driving Protocol Adoption
Path 4: LCFS & Technical Sessions

Loading the player…

Agricultural offsets are relatively new to the carbon market space and to-date, project development has been limited, partially due to the limited experience and knowledge of the agriculture sector by carbon market players and partially due to high transaction costs associated with this project type. This technical session will provide project developers and verifiers with a detailed look at the agricultural offsets landscape and a current overview of developing and verifying agriculture offset projects. The session also will discuss what is being done to reduce transaction costs and drive adoption of agriculture protocols by working landowners across the U.S.
