Under the Green House Gas Contract the Clean Air Action Corporation agrees to give 70% of the profit from the sale of carbon credits back to the Small Group. This concept can sometimes be confusing, so the following section breaks down this profit sharing arrangement step-by-step.
Farmers join TIST as a Small Group. These farmers plant trees as a Small Group and are quantified as a Small Group. TIST pays the Small Group, not the individual farmers in the group.
The Small Group members retain ownership of the land and the trees, and anything that the trees grow. Clean Air Action owns the carbon sequestered by those trees.
