San Diego, Calif. (March 9, 2016) – Each year the Climate Change Business Journal (CCBJ) recognizes outstanding business performance in the climate change industry with the CCBJ Business Achievement Awards.
Tierra Resources and ConocoPhillips are pleased to announce that our three-year mangrove air seeding pilot project to protect against wetland erosion and hurricane surge will receive the CCBJ 2016 Project Merit: Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Award. This project was the first in the world to use crop duster airplanes to establish black mangroves and also contributed to the carbon science of prevented wetland loss.
Tierra Resources’ long-term partner Entergy Corporation will also be acknowledged at a special ceremony Wednesday evening at the Environmental Industry Summit XIV. Entergy Corporation will receive the CCBJ 2016 Business Model Innovation: Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Award for their support of the expansion of the wetland carbon quantification methodology developed by Tierra Resources. This methodology now provides carbon finance options for wetland restoration techniques that prevent wetland loss and the associated release of greenhouse gas emissions.
Tierra Resources is excited to be joining forces with Entergy in 2016 to further demonstrate the scalability and affordability of mangrove air seeding. In the next ten years, Tierra Resources aims to stand by its commitment to preserve wetlands for the next generation by scaling its proven air seeding restoration technique to over 30,000 acres of coastal Louisiana.
