Taming the Wild West of Carbon Markets
March 17 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Minnesota Farmers Union (MFU), in partnership with Farmers Legal Action Group (FLAG) and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA), released a Farmers’ Guide to Carbon Markets in Minnesota earlier this year. With one fifth of the world’s largest companies setting net-zero emissions targets, farmers are being asked to make changes to their operations that sequester carbon and sell companies credit for that sequestered carbon. These relations between farmers, large companies and often third-party vendors are defined by contracts. Attend this panel to learn about potential opportunities and obstacles for your farm in the carbon market.
Panelists include: Brad Jordahl Redlin, Manager, Minnesota Agricultural Water Quality Certification Program, MDA; Tom Cotter, Cotter Farm, Austin, a farmer and member of the carbon guide advisory panel; and Lindsay Kuehn, staff attorney, FLAG.
