  • 1 t CO2 + 10 kg biochar, International + Thailand
A certified climate project combined with additional commitment

This combined project contributes to the financing of a certified climate project and additionally supports a biochar initiative in Thailand. For every tonne of CO2 saved through the contribution via a certified climate project, 10 kg of biochar a produced and used for agricultural activities in Thailand. Instead of environmentally harmful burning of field waste, farmers can convert their crop residues into versatile biochar, which both stores CO2 and improves soil quality.

Currently, the biochar initiative is combined with a certified solar energy project in India (

Our additional commitment: 10 kg of biochar for every tonne of CO2 reduced

With our combined project, we combine verified emission reductions through a certified climate project with additional commitment. Our first biochar initiative, implemented by the Warm Heart Foundation, provides incentives for farmers in Phrao district, Thailand, to use their field waste sustainably instead of burning it.

This works with biochar. The charred biomass permanently stores CO2 and can be used by farmers directly in the field as a soil additive, for example. Among other things, it improves the water and nutrient storage capacity of the soil, which leads to healthier plants and higher yields. The climate also benefits from lower greenhouse gas emissions due to less slash-and-burn agriculture.

Contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Good Health and Well-BeingThe production of biochar avoids the burning of crop residues in open fields, which is reflected in the air quality and thus improves the health of people in the surrounding communities.
Responsible Consumption and ProductionThanks to the biochar programme, crop residues are put to good use and sustainably converted into a valuable resource.
Climate ActionWhen waste, such as crop residues, rots outdoors it releases greenhouse gas emissions. However, when converted into biochar, very little CO2 is released and thus a larger amount of emissions is avoided.
