June 2013

A 'Carbon Storage Brokering' study has been commissioned by the Lake District National Park Authority co-funded by CLASP, to explore the potential for a locally branded carbon market.

The overall aim of the project was to appraise options and develop potential business models for a carbon brokerage scheme that incentivises carbon sequestration through land management.
