C3 Solutions outlines the importance of Blue Carbon in reducing emissions.
- Blue Carbon has enormous Co2 sequestration potential.
- There is robust private sector involvement in the advancement of Blue Carbon.
- By investing in natural and coastal infrastructure and updating the NFIP’s pricing methodology, we can continue to harness the power of the ocean to lower carbon emissions.
“Blue Carbon, which is the carbon stored in coastal and oceanic ecosystems, is a significant nature-based climate solution that is often overlooked. While many natural climate solutions are terrestrial, Blue Carbon sequesters CO2 in seagrass, mangrove forests, marshes, and other coastal ecosystems.”
