The Consortio of the LIFE Carbon Farming Scheme project is as following: St1 (Coordinator), Baltic Action Sea Group BSAG, Tyynelä farm, Natural Resources Institute Finland Luke, Puro.earth and North European Oil Trade NEOT
The goal of the project is to identify and accelerate the development and adoption of novel incentives for carbon sequestration and the increase and maintenance of the organic carbon stock in soil and biomass in Europe. With the aim of promoting a well-functioning voluntary carbon market the project will uncover the key factors in supply and demand measures to invite the private sector to accelerate climate action. The results of the project will be fed into the development of the EU agricultural and climate policies.
