KRNIK54 is a project in Croatia.

In the earlier Yugoslavian times, the land was used as a winery. It contains concrete poles and metal wires to support the grape plants. The plants have died some decades ago but the concrete poles and  metal wires are still in the ground. Cleaning the soil is  time consuming and an expensive undertaking.

This project is a afforestation project, Its purpose is to remove CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. The project type is ARR (Defined by the UN: Afforestation, Reforestation & Revegetation). This means planting new forests to increase carbon sequestration and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. 

The land is 20 ha, allocated for Bamboo (various Phyllostachys types) 18 ha and 2 ha for flowers, beehives and solar systems.

The project started in 2023 with the certification expected in Q2 of 2024. The initial planning is 12 years with a consecutive period of time of 12 years.

A local organisation is handling all agriculture related activities in order to irrigate, fertilize and harvest the land in a proper way.

The Dutch certification buro ONCRA will certify the project and Bureau Veritas will investigate the soil.

The project is open to the public and all carbon credit certificates are published at the farm.

Sustainable Development Goals

1: No poverty

There are many reasons, but in short, because as human beings, our well- being is linked to each other. Growing inequality is detrimental to economic growth and undermines social cohesion, increas- ing political and social tensions and, in some circumstances, driving instability and conflicts.

The private sector has a major role to play in determining whether the growth it creates is inclusive and contributes to poverty reduction. It can promote economic opportunities for the poor.

5: Gender equality

Regardless of where you live in, gender equality is a fundamental human right. Advancing gender equality is critical to all areas of a healthy society, from reducing poverty to promoting the health, education, protection and the well-being of girls and boys.

We fund education campaigns to curb cultural practices like female genital mutilation and change harmful laws that limit the rights of women and girls and prevent them from achieving their full potential.

8: Decent work and economic growth

Goal 8 is about promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all. Decent work means opportunities for everyone to get work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration. A continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments and under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: that all must share in progress.

Providing youth the best opportunity to transition to a decent job calls for investing in education and training of the highest possible quality, providing youth with skills that match labour market demands, giving them access to social protection and basic services regardless of their contract type, as well as leveling the playing field so that all aspiring youth can attain productive employment regardless of their gender, income level or socio-economic background.

Governments can work to build dynamic, sustainable, innovative and people-centred economies, promoting youth employment and women’s economic empowerment, in particular, and decent work for all.

Implementing adequate health and safety measures and promoting supportive working environments are fundamental to protecting the safety of workers, especially relevant for health workers and those providing essential services.

13: Climate action

very person, in every country in every continent will be impacted in some shape or form by climate change. There is a climate cataclysm looming, and we are underprepared for what this could mean.

Businesses and investors need to ensure emissions are lowered, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it makes economic and business sense as well.

15: Life on land

Goal 15 is about conserving life on land. It is to protect and restore terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and stop biodiversity loss.
