Blue Carbon

Apr 29, 2020

In ongoing discussions about reducing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, blue carbon has emerged as a recognized tool to address this challenge in a sustainable and long-term way. Blue carbon describes the ability of aquatic and wetland plants to capture and store carbon from the air. The carbon captured in coastal wetlands presents an opportunity for restoration and infrastructure protection projects to generate greenhouse gas offset credits and incentivize private investment through the revenue that can be generated from carbon credit markets.
