An Overview Of The Avoided And Removed Greenhouse Gases In Alberta’s Annual Cropping Agriculture, By Postal Code, From 2002-2018: Where Did This Happen?

Executive Summary

Between 2002 and 2018, approximately 15,712,760 tonnes of CO2e reductions were serialized and transacted based on actions undertaken on Alberta farms using two land-based offset Protocols, under evolving standards for quantification and for assurance. These likely represent the majority of all direct GHG reduction activities undertaken on the Province’s farms, but do not include on farm energy efficiency, renewables deployment, livestock methane abatement or other voluntary activities due to lack of available data.
