Carbon Projects & Credits

COWCREDIT PROJECTS

No matter how much we reduce our existing emissions in our operations and supply chains, there will always be some that cannot easily be eliminated. But that doesn’t mean we should give up. On the contrary, we should compensate our remaining footprint by supporting certified carbon offset projects. That way, companies and consumers can then be climate-neutral, as the overall effect on the climate will be offset. Mootral compensation projects represent the best standards of international emission reductions available today. By supporting our projects, carbon credit buyers can offset the emissions that they currently cannot avoid generating and help farmers to reduce their own emissions which enables the agricultural sector to contribute to climate protection. Many businesses have already made serious commitments to address their actions and take responsibility for their climate footprint so that the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement can be reached. Together with climate-conscious businesses, we want to create a global system that makes it possible to walk down the path of sustainable development and make real progress! We will run a large portfolio of livestock carbon projects worldwide, generating verified carbon credits and many other benefits that further the UN Sustainable Development Goals. On November 25, 2019, Mootral launched a carbon project for the direct reduction of methane emissions from ruminants in the UK. This lead to the issuance of the world’s first carbon credits from a reduction in enteric methane! Further projects in North America, across Europe and Asia Pacific will be announced soon. Participating in a Mootral carbon project makes a concrete commitment to protecting our climate and helps shape a more sustainable future. Take advantage of our existing projects or ask us to develop a new one in your country… Mootral’s CowCredits are also eligible for use under CORSIA, see more here.

IMPACTS ON THE UN SDGs

In 2015, the UN launched the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, to address global challenges, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, and peace and justice.

Mootral does not only help to reduce methane emissions from cattle. Mootral Ruminant can also increase animal performance as well as the overall health and well-being of the animal.

Mootral is building partnerships between all stakeholders of the value chain – from the farm to the consumer – to make climate smart consumption a reality.

As such it contributes to the following SDGs:

CURRENT PROJECTS

UK COWCREDIT PROJECT:

A UK DAIRY INITIATIVE TO REDUCE METHANE FROM ENTERIC FERMENTATION AND SUPPORT FARMERS

A UK DAIRY INITIATIVE TO REDUCE METHANE FROM ENTERIC FERMENTATION AND SUPPORT FARMERS

Project type: Livestock – Enteric methane 
Project location: United Kingdom  
Project status: Operational
Annual CO2 reduction: 1 tonne per cow

The world’s first carbon credits from enteric methane reduction  were issued under the VERRA standard from this carbon project in the UK.
The news has gathered wide media attention, from CNN, Bloomberg, Forbes, FeedNavigator and many more!

The UK CowCredit Project is open to include more farms and their dairy cows in the UK.

Mootral and agricultural partners have worked together to shape a future which creates climate-smart solutions. This CowCredit project supports agricultural businesses to reduce emissions from UK dairy farms and industries. Mootral is a global solution that benefits farmers, businesses, consumers – as well as the planet.

The project introduces Mootral® feed into dairy cattle diet aiming to reduce methane (CH4) emissions from enteric fermentation by direct inhibition of methanogens in the rumen. Mootral’s patented complementary feed based on garlic and citrus extract; this combination has been shown to synergistically work together in helping animal health/welfare and productivity whilst also reducing methane emissions in dairy cows.
