The ‘Sustainable Farming for the Future’ project is strongly committed to promoting earth friendly farming practices. In particular the project aims to restore vital nutrient-rich top soils, also known as ‘humus’, on over 10,000 hectares of agricultural land across Germany. In healthy, humus rich soils, habitats are strengthened, biodiversity thrives and groundwater production is improved. Food production improves as a result of an overall healthier environment and as soil becomes more fertile it is more resilient to extreme weather fluctuations. Each CarboCert Humus certificate is bundled with 1 ton of avoided greenhouse gas emissions from a Gold Standard or Verra certified project.

This project harnesses the strong prevailing winds along Taiwan’s west coast. The wind farms consist of 62 wind turbines that generate over 480,000 MWh of clean power on average each year, which is supplied to the local electricity grid.
This project capitalises on Laos’ enormous hydropower potential to supply the surrounding region, and particularly the rural communities, with a sustainable source of clean energy. This run-of-the-river hydropower station harnesses flowing water to provide enough clean electricity for the needs of over 110,000 people in Laos each year!
This project aims to address some of the environmental issues that Shanxi province is facing by capturing large quantities of waste gas produced by blast furnaces at a local steel mill and converting it into green electricity, which is then recycled for use at the plant. The project improves local air quality by avoiding uncontrolled gas emissions, and a modernised water cooling system considerably reduces the water consumption of the plant.
The project is planting teak trees on degraded land in the states of Tabasco, Chiapas and Campeche, in the south of the United States of Mexico. Part of the areas will be used for sustainable commercial purposes and part will be protected conservation areas to allow wildlife and biodiversity to thrive.<br />
The project is distributing 400 affordable fire-saving cookstoves to rural families living around the Mamize Nature Reserve in southwestern China. The cookstoves are reducing the amount of wood-fuel needed and smoke produced when cooking by adding an additional chimney and proper air supply system, which enables the fuel to fully burn and extracts the smoke out the room. The project was designed following stakeholder consultations with the local community to ensure their needs were met.
The project aims to support local farmer Tuur in Belgium to create healthy soils, a healthy environment, and economically resilient farm. Farmer Tuur is focused on creating diverse, healthy and local food for the local consumer. It is a kind of living laboratory where regenerative agriculture is successfully experimented with. He actively receives other micro-farmers for permaculture-vegetable horticulture and small-scale livestock farming, where he aims to show that agroecological agriculture is possible, desirable and profitable on a large scale and implement and encourages other farms to follow this model or parts of this resilient ecological model. He recently purchased land from conventional agriculture that he wants to transform into an agroecological short chain project. With your financial support, farmer Tuur can increase and accelerate his actions to transform his land and improve his soil, and development of local supply chains of the high-quality products With these measures, farmer Tuur can take the next steps in his journey towards regenerative nature-positive farming. It is estimated that a project can capture carbon in the soil by on average 2 tons/hectare (yearly) and it can create many more positive effects on biodiversity, water and its local community. This project is proposed by Farming for climate, a Belgian non-profit organization founded in 2019 with its mission to accelerate regenerative farming in Belgium by supporting farmers in their transition from conventional farming practices. With the financial help of you as a company, Farming for Climate can support this local farm throughout the first 3 years, with a yearly on-site follow-up by Farming for climate of the concrete measures agreed with the farmer.

On North Afognak Island, 40 miles from Kodiak City, the Afognak Forest Carbon project area comprises 8,219 acres of low elevation, coastal temperate rainforests. The project prevents carbon emissions by protecting these forests from logging in the baseline scenario. From 2005-2009 the American Land Conservancy (ALC) and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) acquired the project properties previously managed for timber production for conservation in perpetuity. 15% of productive land in the area, subjected to clear-cut logging since the 1980s, had been left to regenerate naturally, with little success. The remaining unlogged areas remain covered by native, old-growth 200-year-old Sitka Spruce forests, lakes, wetlands and small streams.
