Green Carbon, Inc. has signed an MOU with Loc Troi Group, which has the largest rice production area in Vietnam, and DAITHANH, which possesses smart agricultural technology, to promote a paddy field project in An Giang Province in the Mekong Delta region. 

Green Carbon, Inc. (CEO: Jun Okita, hereinafter referred to as “Green Carbon”) is pleased to announce that it has signed an MOU with Loc Troi Group (Representative: Nguyen Duy Thuan, hereinafter referred to as “Loc Troi”), which has the largest rice production area in Vietnam, and DAITHANH (Representative: Tong Giam Doc, hereinafter referred to as “DAITHANH”), which possesses smart agricultural technology. This MOU aims to promote a paddy field project covering approximately 200,000 hectares in An Giang Province (hereinafter referred to as “An Giang”) in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam.

◆Background of the Collaboration with Loc Troi and DAITHANH

Green Carbon is engaged in generating nature-based carbon credits focusing on Southeast Asia, including initiatives such as methane reduction in rice paddies, livestock emissions reduction, and biochar projects. In Vietnam, we are mainly focused on paddy field projects. We have signed an MOU with Loc Troi Group, which has the largest rice production area in Vietnam, to promote a project in the Mekong Delta region of An Giang Province.

Loc Troi is the only entity in Vietnam that has obtained SRP2023 certification. By collaborating with Green Carbon, Loc Troi agrees to create carbon credits derived from paddy fields which contribute to reducing environmental impact. We aim to expand this project to approximately 200,000 hectares.

*¹ SRP (Sustainable Rice Platform) :

SRP is an initiative aimed at promoting resource use efficiency and resilience to climate change in the rice system (both within farms and across the entire value chain). It seeks to pursue voluntary market transformation initiatives by developing sustainable production standards, indicators, incentive mechanisms, and dissemination mechanisms to promote the widespread adoption of sustainable best practices throughout the rice value chain.

*²AWD (Alternate Wetting and Drying)

AWD is a technique that involves periodically flooding and naturally drying paddy fields based on the water level. Compared to continuous flooding, AWD can reduce water usage and contribute to the conservation of water resources.
