Carbon Offset Projects in Mine Buffer Zones

Buffer zones are areas of land set aside around a mining project in order to minimise the impacts of mining activities on surrounding environments.
Buffer zones are designed to protect habitats and biodiversity, reduce air and water pollution, and provide a measure of safety for nearby communities. Agricultural potential in the area may give rise to the possibility of running carbon projects in the buffer zone, which in turn can help with receiving social licence to operate and generate carbon credits, which can help with offsetting site emissions and reducing costs.

Utilising Buffer Zones for Agricultural Carbon Projects

The EESI team can guide you through the process of establishing and managing agricultural carbon offset projects in a buffer zone; from assessing feasibility, to creating a plan, executing strategies, monitoring activities, carbon measurement and offset certification. 

Our team has extensive experience working with mining companies and governments to ensure that buffer zone management strategies are effective and cost-efficient. Request a carbon offset project feasibility assessment for your buffer zone today!
