ABSTRACT
The article discusses carbon framing, a collection of eco-friendly techniques which have the ability to increase carbon sink into soil such as carbon sequestration, and carbon credit in greenhouse gases (GHG) mitigation. It discusses carbon offset credit, a payment made by an emitter of carbon to the developer or owner of a carbon sequestration. It also explores the benefits of carbon framing which include GHG reducation, carbon sequestration and greater water efficiency.
