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

For further information, see May 1st Sign Up Date for Conservation Cropping Offsets.
