What is Natural Capital?
Natural Capital is the term used to describe the value of the natural features of your landscape or property. Things such as creeks, trees, animals, soil types which all have an intrinsic value as they are the things that help generate growth of livestock, crops and other products produced on the land. Natural Capital is the collective term used to clump all the naturally occuring assests under one heading. The Natural Assets work in unison to keep the landscape healthy and functioning. The collective functions sequester Carbon, increase biodiversity of plants and animals, and improve the soil microbiome. Please join our mailinig list for more information if you are interested.
What is Carbon Sequestration?
Sequestration is the term used for the sucking of Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere back into the ground. This process is done via plants and trees. The healthier the soil and landscape, the more sequestration happens. Improving ground cover with grass and plants not only quickens the pace of sequestration, it also allows greater ag production of livestock, crops and fodder etc. By focusing on Sequestration, farmers have a win/win model, where agri-ecosystems and production both benefit.
What do I do now... I have no idea what I am doing with carbon credits?
That's OK, the Carbon and Natural Capital Sector is new and only really been going for about 8 years. Please call and we can chat about options. NatCApCo team have been doing this work since 2011, and have been sequestering carbon for at least 23 years!! So we can help you through the humps!!
Is it expensive to start a Carbon Project?
Depending on the scale and levels of complexity with your landscape, it will determine the upfront costs and ongoing compliance costs. Each property and farming enterprise is different and so each property is assessed on a case by case basis. The benefits need to outweigh the input costs, so NatCapCo does a feasabilty study to ensure that carbon and natural capital projects are worth doing on your land. We get a pretty good idea from 1 or 2 meetings and having access to mapping tech...that is what we are good at!!
What are stacked or layered projects?
This is a term that NatCapCo uses to explain our process to enhance and maximise carbon and biodiversity opportunities for our clients. We are lucky that we have diverse skills and expertise to enable us to create multi layered projects that include soil carbon, tree carbon, fire avoidance, blue carbon, biodiversity credits including threatened species credits (both plant and animal). NatCapCo uses these strategies to mitigate risk for our clients and to ensure clients get the "best bang for their bucks" spent on project and contract development.
