WCR Presents: Rethinking coffee carbon accounting

Tue, Nov 16, 2021 · 8:00 AM · Pacific Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

What is known about the carbon footprint of coffee farming? Why are there such huge ranges in published estimates? Why don't these tools account for critical elements of coffee's carbon footprint, like the carbon stored in soil organic and biomass? And—most importantly—what might a better carbon accounting system look like?

Join us to hear Dr. Umesh Acharya and Dr. Rattan Lal, of the Center for Carbon Management and Sequestration (C-MASC) at the Ohio State University, discussing a new white paper proposing improvements to carbon accounting for coffee.
