An important change has come to Alberta’s carbon offset system. Farmers must be registered with an aggregation company prior to May 1st, 2018 or they will not be able to claim credits for the 2018 year for the Conservation Cropping protocol, the main offset of use to farmers currently.

Alberta Environment and Parks, who sets the rules for the offset system, is changing the whole carbon system to more pre planning, and this is an important result. See p17: http://aep.alberta.ca/climate-change/guidelines-legislation/specified-gas-emitters-regulation/documents/StandardGHGEmissionOffset-Dec18-2017.pdf
