The scientific community largely agrees that the main cause of global warming is linked with anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG), measured as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). Regardless of international efforts to mitigate climate change, communities throughout Adriatic Sea need to adapt themselves to the changing environmental conditions.
The GECO2 project will introduce innovative measures to monitor and offset CO2 emissions through an effective cross-border cooperation.
GECO2 will directly involve the agricultural sector, urging it to adopt sustainable farming practices and interfacing it with industrial and services companies in order to ensure the start of a voluntary credit carbon market, with gains both from an economic and environmental point of view.
The whole project will guide industry and consumers towards new green market opportunities and will help local governance to improve strategies to tackle climate change.
