Our approved UK Carbon Code of Conduct (UKCCC) Net Zero project journey includes:
Discussion of project requirements, agreement of project scope, collection of baseline data and development of an approved project plan.
Annual project monitoring and continuous improvement of the project plan, with the baseline updated every five years.
All in the context of the UKCCC’s Measure – Report – Verify – Certify – Monetise process.
This enables the use of sequestered carbon (beyond Net Zero) for selling (now or in the future) via our approved marketplace, or for holding for future insetting.
We calculate the current Net Zero position of the whole farming business by establishing a carbon balance baseline analysing:
This creates the robust foundation for our project development, UKCCC approval, then annual project monitoring and updates.
We record all Net Zero project data on a single hosted and interactive platform, providing our clients with secure access to their data for informed decision making.
Our dashboards can be embedded within our clients’ websites enabling the reporting and sharing of information with stakeholders as appropriate.
In the approval process the UKCCC establishes the number of carbon offsets that can be issued. Some will be needed to get the landholding business to Net Zero.
UKCCC issues carbon offsets which are robust and assure the central pillars are upheld:
Once Net Zero has been established the UKCCC will certify that position and it can be used by the landholding to sell produce at Net Zero into their supply chains, satisfying customers’ Scope 3 emissions.
Certification is updated each year following the project’s annual monitoring report by the project developer.
This is an opportunity to walk the landholding, discuss the project’s progress, and plan for and implement measures which will continually optimise the opportunity to sequester more carbon and improve biodiversity habitats.
Once the number of remaining carbon offsets has been established, the remainder are forwarded to a UKCCC approved block chain enabled tracking system and market place to be sold at a time of the project host’s choosing.
