IBI is very excited to announce that for the first time we have been invited to send three delegates to attend the upcoming United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (informally known as COP24) event in Katowice, Poland. To our knowledge this is the first time any organization predominantly focused on biochar will be represented at COP.

COP24 is a two-week event (December 3 – 14) which brings together thousands of people from across the globe to discuss solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. This year’s conference will focus on three key themes:

  • Technology – development of climate-friendly modern solutions,
  • Man – solidary and just transition of industrial regions;
  • Nature – achieving climate neutrality by absorbing CO2 by forests and land, or by water management.

IBI strongly believes that biochar can play a significant role in not only addressing the climate challenge, but also in addressing many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We believe having delegates that can speak knowledgeable to those working on climate issues is critical. Our plan is to send 3 different delegates for each of the two weeks.  To do this effectively, we need your help.  Funding to cover traveling expenses for certain delegates is urgently needed. Please consider supporting IBI’s attendance at this important event.  We have created a specific donation button (at right) and thank you in advance for your generosity! As a reminder your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable.
