If you own or manage land, get paid to sequester* carbon. It’s simple.
*Sequester is just a fancy word for taking carbon out of our atmosphere.
Why capture carbon in land?
Natural carbon sequestration through soil and related land-based activities is an under-utilised route for addressing our climate emergency. A route moreover which has the potential to make a significant global dent in the amount of carbon we need to urgently remove from our atmosphere.
Based on Project Drawdown’s research, action on soil and land has the potential to account for almost half of the carbon we need to capture by the end of the century — about 443.19 Gigatonnes out of the estimated 997.17 total required.
Ensuring a fair and equitable return
As carbon becomes more valuable, who stands to gain?
Much like a homeowner can install a set of photovoltaics and sell surplus energy to the national grid, anyone with the ability to capture carbon should be in a position to finance and be rewarded for that work in a fair way.
As we turn to farmers, crofters, estate owners, allotment holders, public land managers, and other individuals in a position to use land for carbon sequestration to help solve the climate crisis, we are also in a position to support their livelihoods (or public-benefit endeavours) by paying a fair price for the captured carbon and by ensuring that carbon offsetting payments can go to genuinely sustainable and impactful activities.
- Make a real dent in the amount of carbon removed from the atmosphere
- Improve general soil and groundwater health
- Create more wildlife- and pollinator-friendly spaces
- Earn additional revenue by measuring and selling the carbon you capture
- Reduce land upkeep and farming input costs
- Improve margins, profitability, and yield rates
We have an open call for applications from people who are interested in participating in our pilot projects.
