• We do not make this guarantee. What we do guarantee is that each certificate sold earns the farmer at least £23. This is based on our floor price commitment of €27.50 per certificate, which is £23 at a GBP-EUR exchange rate of 1.2. Future prices are subject to the prevailing exchange rate at that time. What’s more, we guarantee that you will always receive about 70% of the final sales price, however high that sales price rises.
  • We do also have a limited number of agreements that allow us to guarantee the sale of certificates for some farmers, thanks to the multi-year commitments already made by some companies;
  • Typically, certificates will be generated and sold annually by our partner, South Pole. They are experts in the carbon markets, having mobilised finance for over 700 projects worldwide from their 18 global offices and network of corporate partners. There is every indication that demand for these certificates is currently outstripping supply. As an example, when we launched the programme, we had already pre-sold €500,000 worth of certificates that would be generated in the following years;
  • Note also that 20% of all certificates generated will not be sold that year. They must be held in a buffer and will be sold 10 years later if you meet the loss prevention criteria.
