ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role of aggregators as carbon offset middlemen. Carbon offset aggregation involves converting land-based practices into tonnes of CO2 equivalents, allowing participation in a market where producers can add value to their operations by offering offsets to large final emitters. According to Bill Dorgan of Agri-Trend Aggregation Inc., producers need to understand how they qualify and how they generate offset tonnes.
