Simon Haldrup, Co-founder and CEO : Working To Enable Environmental and Financial Sustainability in Agriculture

 

Our Co-founder and CEO, Simon Haldrup had a chat with beststartup.eu about where Agreena is at the moment as a company, and where were headed.

Simon goes (a bit) into detail about, not only the inspiration behind Agreena, but also about our "magic sauce" that sets us apart from the competition.

Learn more about our "magic sauce", our 5 year scope and a few of our setbacks in the full article below.

There's still plenty of available chairs for our online webinars

 

We're still hosting our recurring webinars on AgreenaCarbon, hosted by our friends and partners Agrovi.

The webinars are available both in English and Danish, and will cover general questions related to AgreenaCarbon, but will also open up for the opportunity of diving into the specific fields of the individual attendees.

The webinar will last approx. 1 hour and Agrovi would very much like to answer any questions you may have. If there are current topics that are relevant to address on one of these webinars, Agrovi will of course do so.

Meet Agreena at 'Forget 2050 - The Climate Crisis Cannot Wait!"

Meet Agreena at 'Forget 2050 - The Climate Crisis Cannot Wait!"

 

Agricultural soils can reverse the climate crisis - and we believe we have a good solution to activate this.

So we are thrilled to be invited to join the Net Zero Now event during the COP26 in Glasgow this year.

We are proud to be on stage at the event - "Forget 2050 - The Climate Crisis Cannot Wait!” hosted by Net Zero Now on the 4th of November.

We will also be available for questions and a general chat from our booth from 11:00-14:00 - so come by and learn how we’re planning to remove carbon footprints by utilising European soils.

Handelsplatformen Commoditrader skifter navn til Agreena.

Handelsplatformen Commoditrader skifter navn til Agreena.

Commoditrader startede som en digital handelsplatform, der skulle demokratisere og effektivisere handlen med landmandens vigtigste råvare – korn. I dag er platformen veletableret i flere europæiske lande. Og flere digitale løsninger er kommet til.

Det skriver selskabet i en pressemeddelelse.

Navneskiftet til Agreena markerer, at produktporteføljen nu ikke kun rummer en handelsplatform for korn, men en række ag-tech-løsninger, der hjælper landmænd over hele Europa med at blive både økonomisk og klimamæssigt bæredygtige.

 

Fra Handel Med Korn Til Handel Med CO2

”Der er sket meget, siden vi startede virksomheden i 2016. Klima- og miljøspørgsmål er skyllet ind over landbrugsbranchen med fornyet styrke. Derfor udviklede vi Commodicarbon: Et program, hvor landmanden kan sælge CO2-certifikater ved at omlægge til mindre klimabelastende dyrkningsmetoder i marken. Gennem programmet kan landmanden vælge at få medfinansieret og accelereret den grønne omstilling af sin bedrift, fortæller administrerende direktør Simon Haldrup.

 

Bredere Fokus På Bæredygtige Ag-tech-løsninger Kalder På Nyt Navn

”Vi oplevede hurtigt en stor interesse for vores nye forretningsområder, herunder Commodicarbon. Men vi oplevede også, at nogle blev forvirrede over, at vores firmanavn var det samme som navnet på et af vores produkter. Og med de mange løsninger, vi forventer at udvikle i fremtiden, kunne vi se, at forvirringen nok kun ville blive større, hvis vi skulle til at føje endnu flere produktnavne til Commodi-familien. Derfor havde vi brug for at finde et nyt navn, der bedre kunne afspejle vores fokus på at udvikle innovative ag-tech-løsninger, der hjælper landmænd med at drive en økonomisk og klimamæssigt bæredygtig forretning”, lyder det fra Simon Haldrup, der fortsætter:

”Valget faldt på navnet Agreena, fordi den første stavelse peger i retning af landbrug, samtidig med at green afspejler vores fokus på at accelerere landbrugets grønne omstilling. Og så kunne vi godt lide, at Agreena på engelsk ligger ret tæt op ad arena. Vi ser nemlig først og fremmest os selv som en enabler (en der muligør det. red), der bygger den platform – eller arena – hvor landmanden kan få succes”, fortæller Simon Haldrup.

Det nye navn betyder dog ikke et farvel til nogle af de eksisterende services:

”Vi har hverken fejet vores produkter til siden eller lagt dem bag os – vi bygger slet og ret ovenpå. Alle vores services fortsætter fuldstændig som hidtil. Nu sker det bare under et navn, der bedre indkapsler vores vision, og hvor vi er på vej hen som virksomhed”, udtaler Simon Haldrup.

How new carbon offset scheme for regenerative ag works

How new carbon offset scheme for regenerative ag works

The first UK-certified soil carbon offsetting scheme is available to farmers who use regenerative agriculture practices, offering them a commercial opportunity worth up to £100/ha from sequestering carbon in their soils.

Called Gentle Farming, the fledgling system allows participating farmers to track carbon sequestration throughout the year, look at ways to change the eventual outcome and take steps to improve it.

Once harvest is over, soil carbon storage measurements are independently verified, with certificates issued, allowing farmers to sell these certificates and get financially supported and rewarded for their environmental practices.

It has been developed by Thomas Gent of Gentle Farming in partnership with Commodicarbon, a Denmark-based platform, which has a carbon certification programme that quantifies the soil carbon sequestration associated with reduced tillage and its changing crop management.

Income boost
With the potential to boost farm incomes by an estimated £90-£150/ha, the system works for each crop year and will continue to evolve as new methods and technologies become available, explains Mr Gent.

“Every farm is different and there are a number of factors to take into account, but an average figure for a no-till farm is 2-3t carbon dioxide equivalents per hectare,” he says.

Congratulations to our partner Thomas Gent

A round of applause to our partner Thomas Gent

Our partner Thomas Gent recently won a ‘Climate Change Champions Award’ in the UK and we couldn’t be more proud of having him and Gentle Farming as our partner in the UK market.

Through the Gentle Farming initiative, Thomas has been setting the scene for the future of farming in the UK, helping farmers transition into regenerative carbon farming in a sustainable manner.

CO2 - det er noget Søren Ilsøe sælger

CO2 - det er noget Søren Ilsøe sælger

Søren Ilsøe har i 2021 indgået samarbejde med Commoditrader om certificering af knap 300 hektar jord, der samlet set leverer 615 tons salgbare CO2-kreditter.

Conservation agriculture pioneren Søren Ilsøe kan nu mærke sit CO2 bidrag til verden på bundlinjen, og han ser en kæmpestor fremtid for landbruget i at sælge den CO2-gevinst, der findes på markfladen.
