Voluntary Credits Approach

Technology / Service Summary

Introduce agricultural practices that reduce/fix GHG and generate carbon credits, generating new revenue for farmers.


By reducing or fixing GHG emissions from agricultural activities and converting these efforts into carbon credits, the profitability of agriculture can be improved and sustainable agriculture and food production can be continued.
Specifically, the introduction of water management systems in rice paddies will reduce methane emissions, and these efforts will be converted into voluntary credits such as VCS and GS to enable the continuation and spread of low GHG emission agricultural practices.


・The largest achievement of J-crejits in rice paddies in Japan
・Tools that enable farmer-friendly operations through the use of systems and IoT
→Enables the elimination of as much non-farm labor as possible, and can be adopted by many farmers.
・Quality management to maximize farmers' profits and credit reliability.
→Our system and governance enable the creation of high quality credits and maximize the return of profits to farmers.


By implementing this initiative, methane emissions can be reduced by 30 - 50% in rice paddies through water management techniques.
In addition to this, farmers can earn additional income through carbon credits and we can provide voluntary credits to the market.
