News about climate change reaches us daily. In these uncertain and tumultuous times, the carbon market has become quite popular due to its economic efficiency, potential to mitigate the effects of climate change, and the benefits it can provide for farmers and local communities.

But how has something that is practically invisible to the naked eye become part of the market economy? How does this carbon market work and why is it so important for companies?

During this Community of Practice, we will demystify the carbon market. You will have the chance to hear from Hicham Daoudi, Head of Carbon at Commonland, to discuss the role companies have in reducing C02 emissions and participating in the carbon market. He will provide practical examples of carbon projects Commonland is currently involved in, and explain how carbon credits work, how they are sold, and how they are ultimately bought by organisations.

Jan Maarten Dros, from Wij.land will provide additional insights about Wij.land’s new carbon pilot with Rabobank. Jan Maarten Dros is an expert in sustainable supply chains, payments for ecosystem services and is responsible at Wij. land for creating sustainable economic agricultural business models.

After the presentations, you will have the chance to discuss the content in small breakout rooms and see how it fits with the work you are currently during in your landscape. Potential questions that might come up: Is your landscape currently working with the carbon market? Why or why not? What potential do you see in working with a carbon model? What risks or challenges are there?

If you would like to connect with other landscapes and learn more about the carbon market for your landscape, this is your opportunity!
