Launched the Methodology TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System Version 1.0

Launched the Methodology TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System Version 1.0

Today the Methodology TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System, Version 1.0, was launched. Now, after the public consultation period and review of the comments arising from it, it is ready to receive projects.

Each methodology we launch goes through the following steps:

  • Announcement that there will be a public consultation, so that the public is aware of the next steps;
  • Public consultation period, so that the public can contribute their criticisms and suggestions through the online form available, as this way we can build together methodologies in accordance with the Brazilian reality and also reinforce the transparency of our processes; and
  • Analysis of all contributions received. We consider these suggestions in our next methodology update.

About TERO.004 Methodology

TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System is an Agriculture, Forests and Land Use (AFOLU) methodology, in this first version, aimed at the cultivation of Coffee throughout the Brazilian territory. The methodology provides for the generation of Verified Carbon Credit (by Removal), represented by one ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e). The project’s commitment period is unlimited, that is, its closing date can be defined later by communicating it to the certifier and the market.

The objective of this methodology is the generation of environmental assets in projects that promote the removal, conservation and preservation of carbon stocks in agroforestry farming systems throughout Brazilian territory. It is an incentive for farmers who, through their agricultural activities, contribute to the global climate balance.

The Carbon Stock of the project area can be monitored periodically through verification. Any verified increase in carbon stocks in the crop will be considered a Verified Carbon Credit in the amount exceeding the maximum stock previously measured.

The methodology, within the concept of Payment for Environmental Services (PSA), has as co-benefits the conservation and preservation of biome biodiversity and sustainable development. In addition to maintaining carbon stocks from agricultural crops, forestry is also accepted as a way of enriching biomass stocks.

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.

Public Consultation of the Methodology TERO.003 – Carbon Stock in Forests is open!

TERO.003 – Carbon Stock in Forests is an Agriculture, Forests and Land Use (AFOLU) methodology, in this first version, focused on the Amazon Biome. It brings as an innovation the generation of two environmental assets: (a) Verified Carbon Stock and (b) Verified Carbon Credit, both represented by one ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e). The commitment period for projects that opt for this methodology is unlimited and can be renewed periodically, upon communication to the certifier and the market.

Assets are generated through the preservation and increase of biomass stocks in all forest areas on rural properties, including the Legal Reserve (RL) and Permanent Preservation Areas (APPs). The objective is to encourage activities that keep the forest standing, generating assets (credit and carbon stock) that benefit rural owners who demonstrate their contribution to mitigating climate change.

The Verified Carbon Stock of the project area may be renewed periodically through the new submission of the Sample Forest Inventory (IFA) and its verification, carried out by Tero Carbon and an independent audit. If an increase in carbon stocks in the forest is found, a Verified Carbon Credit will also be generated in the amount exceeding the maximum stock previously measured.

The methodology, within the concept of Payment for Environmental Services (PSA), has the co-benefit of maintaining and preserving biodiversity and water resources. Forestry activities are also accepted as a way of enriching carbon stocks.
