Enerion provides special support to nature projects related to the conservation and improvement of carbon reserves. Our services in this area include the preparation of requirements and management of procedures to obtain carbon credits.
Examples of projects in which we provide our services are:
It is estimated that up to 20% of all the CO2 released comes from changes in land use, and in particular from the degradation and loss of tropical forests. Thus, conserving carbon from existing forests significantly impacts global greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the increase in forest cover promotes the absorption of CO2, and therefore reduces its concentration in the atmosphere.
REDD+ projects refer to activities that aim to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD), as well as the sustainable management of existing forests, including conservation, increase (+) of carbon stocks.
REDD+ projects may also be eligible to obtain carbon credits.
Coastal ecosystems provide essential ecosystem services, such as coastal protection and fish nursery grounds; they also sequester and store "blue" carbon from the atmosphere and oceans and are therefore a solution to global climate change. Blue carbon is the carbon stored in plants and in the sediment of coastal and marine ecosystems.
Mangrove, salt marsh and seagrass preservation projects are eligible to obtain carbon credits, corresponding to the volume of emission reductions and removals by avoiding the loss or degradation of these ecosystems.
Carbon farming, literally “carbon cultivation”, contemplates the definition and implementation of remuneration schemes for carbon sequestration practices in the soil. “Carbon sequestration” is effective only when combined with organic and regenerative farming practices, while it is ineffective with intensive farming.
Practical examples of carbon farming are:
The remuneration schemes are based on obtaining and selling carbon credits, that is, the certification of tons of CO2 accumulated thanks to specific carbon farming activities.
