Olive Orchards As A Carbon Sink Are Good For The Environment

The International Olive Council (IOC) plans to create a proposal for a conference on the carbon sink effect of olive trees to be presented at COP22, a United Nations conference dedicated to climate change to be held in Marrakech in November. A carbon sink is anything that absorbs more carbon than it releases as carbon dioxide.

” The fact that the consumption of olive oil and the protection of this crop are positive and green measures for the environment is precisely the message that the IOC wishes to share with society at large. It is essential to raise awareness of the environmental contribution of olive orchards as carbon sinks,” states a member of the IOC.
