Setting up and running a soil carbon project

​​How a soil carbon project is set up and run is critical for calculating how much carbon is stored as a result. In turn, this determines the amount of abatement that has occurred and how many ACCUs may be issued for a project. Parts 3 and 4 of the method and explanatory statement describe in detail how to set up a project, and how to calculate the volume of emissions from the amount of carbon stored, as well as the net abatement that has occurred​.

Remember to download a copy of the explanatory statement to read along with the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative— Estimating Sequestration of Carbon in Soil Using Default Values) Methodology Determination 2015. The explanatory statement provides further detail and is an important document for interpreting and understanding the method.

Setting up and running a soil carbon project can be divided into the following parts. In each part below, the relevant sections of the method and explanatory statement are referred to, which explain the project in more detail.​
