AMRE Team | Carbon Credits for Ohio Landowners

AMRE team, Carbon Credit

Carolyn Klein ’24, Environmental Studies
Emma Staggs ’24, Studio Art (Economics minor)

Advisors: Moses Luri, Matt Mariola

The team worked with a local landowner to research how the carbon market works and evaluated the plausibility for small Ohio landowners to sell carbon credits from their forest land. Research included a comprehensive analysis of the carbon market and current credit programs. The team created an economic model that allows local landowners to understand the monetary benefits of carbon credits, and a drafted proposed changes to Ohio legislation that would incentivize landowners to enroll their land in carbon credit projects.
