RENEWables #49: Carbon Credits for Farmers & Agroforestry

RENEWables #49: Carbon Credits for Farmers & Agroforestry

Scientists have long suspected a link between industrialization and climate change, but serious study of the issue did not begin until the second half of the twentieth century when the first predictions that changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels could substantially alter Earth’s surface temperature through the greenhouse effect.  It would be another 100 years before carbon credits are introduced as a mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by creating the $2 billion carbon credit market in which companies can offset their emissions by investing in environment-positive projects, such as planting trees in the tropics.

Join this episode of RENEWables, where we sat down with Robin Saluoks, CEO of eAgronom, to learn more about their carbon market program, what organic farming looks like in Estonia, and the short- and long-term benefits they are bringing to farmers all over the world.
