TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System
11/06/2023 to 12/05/2023
TERO.004 – Carbon Stock in Agrosilvopastoral System is an Agriculture, Forestry and Land Use methodology (AFOLU, acronym in English), 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.
