Public Consultation on the Methodology TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System is open!

TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System is an innovative methodology that, in this first version, is aimed at Coffee cultivation throughout the Brazilian biome. It aims to generate two environmental assets: Verified Carbon Stock and Verified Carbon Credit, both equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide (tCO2e).

The project commitment period is unlimited and can be defined later.

Environmental Preservation

The TERO.004 methodology promotes the maintenance, conservation and preservation of carbon stocks in agroforestry cropping systems throughout the Brazilian territory. The objective is to encourage projects that contribute to the mitigation of climate change, rewarding farmers who work to preserve the environment.

Renewal and Co-Benefits

Projects can renew their Verified Carbon Stock by submitting a new Sample Forest Inventory (SFI) and verification by Tero Carbon and independent audit. If there is an increase in carbon stocks, additional Verified Carbon Credits will be generated.

In addition to contributing to the mitigation of climate change, the methodology promotes the conservation of biome biodiversity and sustainable development. Forestry is also accepted as a means of enriching biomass stocks.

About Tero Carbon

Tero Carbon is a digital certifier of environmental assets, credit and carbon stock. We work with exclusive methodologies, developed by partner institutions, which were submitted and approved in a Public Consultation instrument.

We have developed an independent process for certifying carbon projects and verifying environmental assets, supported by a technological platform developed to accelerate these processes. We issue certificates for the generation, transfer and retirement of carbon credits using Blockchain technology to ensure security, transparency and traceability of assets.

We share and support best market practices to deliver a quality asset, supported by eligibility criteria and socio-environmental safeguards, in accordance with best market practices, such as those established by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations (UN) and the Core Carbon Principles. We are a certifying entity for the Amazon and Brazil.
