The U.S. Hemp Roundtable is proud to endorse the Growing Climate Solutions Act (S. 1251). The Act creates a certification program at USDA to help solve technical entry barriers to farmer and forest landowner participation in carbon credit markets.

Introduced in late April of this year, the bipartisan bill already has garnered 43 co-sponsors in the Senate. More than 70 organizations have endorsed the bill, including McDonald’s, American Farmland Trust, Microsoft, and the Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions.
