Carbon Sequestration in Soils
Updated: Aug 12, 2018
Jimmy Sinton, CEO of the Fair Carbon Exchange, discusses the protocols, credits, costs, benefits and potential of soil carbon sequestration in current carbon markets.
Sinton has been working with Dr. Elaine Ingham for two years to implement her soil building and carbon sequestering programs in mainstream agriculture. He combined a career in management consultancy with education, centred on the application of “Lean Thinking” in manufacturing, distribution and service. Working with corporations, including IBM, Procter and Gamble, and Kellogg’s, he has implemented systems that continuously improve efficiency. After obtaining a graduate degree in Ecology from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, James founded the government funded South African Seaweed Research Unit that produced sustainably harvested plant growth stimulants which are still sold in South Africa.
Presented on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at the Living Soils Symposium Montreal, hosted by Regeneration Canada at Concordia University.
