Commissioned by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, the climate envelope is working on measures to ensure emission reductions in the field of trees and forests, carbon sequestration in the soil and in the field of methane emissions from stables and storage.
In order to be able to include the effect of such measures in future (inter)national climate reports, these measures must be built into the existing calculation method that is used to calculate the emission figures. These emission figures are supplied to the Pollutant Release and Transfer Register.
In this project preparations are being made to adapt the method for emissions of methane and from trees and forests. Preparation for the measures for carbon sequestration in the soil is done through the Smart Land Use programme.
