Nature-Based Carbon Credits for Drinking Water
Globally, billions face water insecurity and water quality challenges. Water is an under-invested sector facing increasing pressure from climate change. Meanwhile, carbon credit markets provide incentives for nature-based climate solutions, but lack project diversity and quality. At this intersection, Virridy brings Freshwater Decarbonization With Data Science.
Green infrastructure, including tree planting, soil erosion control, wildfire mitigation and livestock exclusion, can improve water quality and reduce the need for concrete and steel gray infrastructure. By avoiding the construction and operation of energy intensive, carbon emitting water and wastewater plants, we can generate carbon credit revenue to pay for watershed protection.
Virridy's patented and published technology solutions fuse in-situ sensor data with remote sensing and data science to deliver high quality spatial and temporal water resource predictions as the digital monitoring, reporting and verification audit trail for high integrity freshwater decarbonization credits.
