Adeline FAVRELProject Manager – Carbon Certification
Adeline joined the I4CE and the Agriculture – Forestry programme in March 2022 to work on carbon certification in France and in the European Union on agricultural and forestry issues.
Prior to joining I4CE, Adeline worked for 6 years at France Nature Environnement (the French national federation of environmental associations), first as a project manager and then as Forest policy officer. In addition to coordinating the work of the Forest network, she is in charge of advocacy activities on biodiversity, energy and climate issues in relation to forestry policies, official representations, as well as expertise and consultations at European and international levels.

Op-ed | Payment for carbon farming: we need an ambitious and pragmatic European certificationThe European Commission will propose a `carbon certification’ by the end of the year as a first step towards remunerating farmers and foresters who contribute to carbon farming. This certification project raises debates and concerns. For Adeline FAVREL of I4CE, the EU can respond and develop an ambitious certification by relying on the experience of the Member States in this field.
Recommendations for the European Carbon Certification FrameworkTo achieve the climate goals of the UE, The European Commission wants to create a carbon certification framework to encourage carbon storage in the land sector. The challenge is to develop a common and harmonised framework at the European level by better relying on the expertise acquired through existing certification frameworks. With this study, I4CE propose 7 recommendations, inspired by both our concrete experience with the French Label Bas-Carbone to which we have contributed, and by 15 years of research on carbon certification.
