WELCOME TO FAIR CARBON

 

The Gallifrey Foundation, sponsors of the Fair Carbon project, are pleased to announce that Fair Carbon has now been established as an independent, Swiss non-profit organisation. This is in keeping with the Foundation’s build-operate-transfer philosophy. Fair Carbon is growing its team of subject matter experts to help speed the development of the platform.

 

_____________

 

The Fair Carbon project is creating holistic step-by-step guidance to make it easier to design, register, and validate blue carbon projects that meet or surpass carbon standards' strict requirements. 

Interested in blue carbon as a funding opportunity for your conservation or community work? Click "Start Here" for an overview of the whole process, or visit our Resources page to explore articles and data maps, including a map of all currently registered blue carbon projects.

 

 

 

We are engaged and active supporting stakeholders from project developers to end buyers of credits, and occasionally advise on national programmes and policy.

Our experts work hard to build understanding of the value of nature-based offsets, the importance of ethical approaches which are inclusive of both people and biodiversity, and the need for transparency in the Voluntary Carbon Market.

PROJECT DESIGN GUIDE: MANGROVES

 

The Fair Carbon platform guides projects through the phases of project development, with content categorized into four themes: Legal, management, financial, and scientific. Modular guides, tools, and checklists exclusively available through Fair Carbon will streamline the project process and provide connections between projects, validation agencies, and investors.

Our first modular guide to the development of blue carbon projects focuses on mangrove ecosystems. Introductory elements are open access, further content requires user registration.

Module content is currently in development and will undergo expert review before being made publicly accessible.

The Fair Carbon platform is under development.

During the Proof-of-Concept phase, we can only offer limited support to mangrove & other blue carbon projects. However, we encourage land managers, project developers, NGOs, and other user groups to register their sites and receive updates as the Fair Carbon system is developed.

New content for registered users is due for publication throughout 2022.
