The project objectives

Main project objectives:

  • To determine farming practices that lead to increased carbon dioxide uptake by plants from the atmosphere


  • To take measures to reduce GHG emissions and other environmental impacts during crop production processes


  • To reverse the trend of soil organic matter losses, erosion and desertification by measures that increase the rate of soil organic matter build up


  • To improve the biodiversity and sustainability of the olive grove ecosystem


  • To lower the olive oil production cost and to create added value from the standardization of a climate beneficial product


  • To develop a set of easily measurable indicators that can be used to link farmer practices to the quantity of carbon stored in the soil


  • To provide farmers and consumers with a clear and robust information system about the environ mental performance during food production processes
