By the end of 2021, we will have validated results on carbon sequestration for at least 250 producers in six grower organizations, serving as a successful pilot project and we will have offered up to US$100K in “environmental service” premiums to regenerative organic farmers who have successfully demonstrated their carbon sequestration. By the end of 2022, we expect to have a plan to scale the successes of our work to our full network of producer partners and to engage in collaborative efforts supporting carbon sequestration across the coffee industry.
- We will introduce and train coop representatives from at least five of our producer partners in three countries on the potential and proper application of the Cool Farm Tool to track their CO2 emissions and/or carbon sequestration in 2020.
- By the end of 2021, we will have validated results on carbon sequestration for at least 250 producers from within our producer partner organizations, serving as a successful pilot project; and we will have offered up to US$100K in “environmental service” payments to regenerative organic farmers who have demonstrated, through the successfully application of the Cool Farm Tool in the fields, quantified levels of carbon sequestration.
- By the end of 2022, we will have a plan to scale this carbon tracking work to all interested producer partners from within the Coop Coffees’ producer network, and to seek active collaboration from across all sectors of the Specialty Coffee industry and allied actors.
