BlueLeaf Conservation develops solutions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions based on the capacity of the oceans to store large quantities of CO2.
THE OCEANS : A VICTIM AND A SOLUTION TO GLOBAL WARMING
The oceans have captured between 25 and 38% of anthropogenic CO2 in the industrial era and are therefore a powerful mitigator of human activity. However, the ecosystems that carry out carbon sequestration are under constant pressure.
The oceans are an opportunity for companies to reduce their CO2 emissions and an essential capital to preserve in the development of human activities.
Blue carbon is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. BlueLeaf Conservation focuses on carbon in coastal ecosystems mangroves, kelp forests, tidal marshes, and seagrasses. These ecosystems sequester and store large quantities of blue carbon in both the plants and the sediment below. For example, over 95% of the carbon in seagrass meadows is stored in the soils.
