WELCOME TO FAIR CARBON

 

The Fair Carbon project collaborates with leading conservation NGOs and other stakeholders to make it easier to design, register, and validate natural carbon projects that meet or surpass carbon standards' strict requirements. 

The sale of nature-based carbon offsets can fund ecosystem conservation and restoration on a large scale, while income-sharing schemes can benefit coastal communities. However, the accreditation process is complex and contains many barriers to entry. By making carbon income more accessible, we hope to both enable positive changes in land management and support companies seeking to offset emissions they are not able to reduce.

We also provide open-access resources which increase understanding of the value of nature-based offsets, the importance of ethical approaches which are inclusive of both people and biodiversity, and to build 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.

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.
