Rolle, Switzerland – February 22nd, 2021
Mootral is proud to announce that its CowCredits, the world’s first carbon credits from the reduction of enteric methane emissions - are now eligible under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
From now on CowCredits can be purchased by airlines to voluntarily offset their GHG-emissions to achieve the sector’s net-zero objective by 2050.
CORSIA is a UN deal designed to help the aviation industry reach its aspirational goal to make all growth in international flights after 2020 carbon neutral. Developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and starting in 2021, it requests aircraft operators to voluntarily purchase high quality carbon credits from the non-regulated carbon market.
Mootral is a Swiss Agritech company that develops innovative, scalable and sustainable solutions for the agricultural systems of tomorrow. Together with Verra, the world’s largest voluntary carbon standard, Mootral has developed a proprietary carbon methodology that measures the reduction of enteric methane emissions from ruminants.
Mootral’s CEO, Thomas Hafner, said: „International aviation alone is responsible for around 1.3% of global CO2 emissions, according to the ICAO. Airlines will have to buy emissions reduction offsets from other sectors to compensate their emissions. We are proud to deliver an innovative, scalable and sustainable carbon offset solution to the aviation sector to greatly support them in meeting their ambitious climate goals.”
We invite all actors from the aviation sector to join us in our “MOOvement” and benefit from our CowCredits today.
