Cultivate a climate positive impact in agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is widely regarded as an effective method to reduce greenhouse gases and turn soil into carbon sinks, removing CO2 from the atmosphere. As the quality of your soil improves, so does the profitability of your business.

Nature+

One-third of our life-supporting soils are devastated globally, AgreenaCarbon farmers are regenerating their soils. Improving soil health and structure not only reduces erosion, but also enhances water preservation and resistance to flooding and drought. Our farmers are building organic carbon stocks in the soil, increasing earthworks and enhancing biodiversity.

Climate+

Conventional farming is responsible for approximately 25% of global GHG emissions. But now there’s an opportunity for it to be part of the climate solution. Farmers participating in our programme are not only reducing GHG emissions in their fields, but actually pulling carbon from the atmosphere and storing it in their soils.

People+

Healthier soils lead to higher-quality, more nutritious food for all. Our global stewards of the land, who are responsible for feeding a growing population, are running on thin margins. Transitioning to regenerative agriculture requires capital, and your certificate purchases directly support the community, financing the farmers who are pioneering climate action within agriculture.

What is regenerative agriculture?

A more sustainable and profitable solution for farmers … and the planet

Regenerative agriculture is a farming system built on several different parameters and practices, such as minimum disturbance, use of cover crops and active crop rotation, use of organic fertilisation, healthy residue management and decreased fuel usage.
All in all, these practices help grow healthier crops while sequestering and storing atmospheric carbon. Additional benefits are improved water infiltration and holding capacity, increased biodiversity, and higher resilience towards the erosive effects of wind and water.

Conventional carbon-intensive farming

Regenerative carbon-removal farming

Conventional carbon-intensive farming

Regenerative carbon-removal farming


Intensive tilling and ploughing

No/rediced tillage enabling the soil to capture and store carbon


Excessive use of fertilisers and pesticides

Organic fertilisers and ulilisation of harvest residues as biomass source


Monocultures

Sustainable crop rotation securing better nutrient management and biodiversity


Bare soils

Cover crops enhance carbon sequestration and protects soils


By transitioning to regenerative agriculture practices, farmers can turn soils into carbon sinks and regenerate the soil in the process – all while increasing climate resiliency, biodiversity, water management and long-term profitability.

Pioneers of the regenerative revolution

Our farmers are the influencers, pioneers and enabling faces to unlock the agricultural industry from its conventional ways

Regenerative agriculture is a growing movement, and there is significant need for industry to work alongside farmers and support these market enablers – the leaders of our movement

Buy to support

The regenerative transition calls for significant capital investment.

But farmers are running on razor-thin margins. Carbon markets finance conventional farmers’ transitions to regenerative agriculture. Through the AgreenaCarbon programme, farmers are able to generate IPCC-scientifically aligned and third-party verified carbon certificates for the carbon sequestered in their soils. Farmers sell certificates to fund new machinery required for regenerative agriculture and to mitigate short-term yield losses.

How does it work?

We connect farmers to the voluntary carbon market to finance their transition from
conventional to regenerative agriculture.

AgreenaCarbon farmer earns carbon certificates for GHG reductions and the carbon sequestered into their soil.

The farmer sells certificates to fund new machinery required for regenerative agriculture, mitigate short-term yield loss, and sustain the profitability of their business so they can continue to produce food.

Climate-conscious companies looking to make an impact buy the farmer’s carbon certificate to offset their own unavoidable emissions and meet ESG targets.

“When learning how to refrain from tilling the soil every single year, a whole new world opens. Biology can replace diesel and steel, and as an added benefit, you will have more beneficial insects, vipers, larks and partridges.”

– Søren Ilsøe

“One thing is that we have less overpasses, but most importantly, we reduce the evaporation of moisture from the soil, and that leaves more water for the plants. This is extremely important under these dry conditions we experience from time to time.”

Agreena farmers are part of a growing cohort within the agricultural community focused on improving soil health, biodiversity and overall resilience to pests and climate change. The farmers’ intentions for joining AgreenaCarbon are often rooted in their faith in the new system and the co-benefits that the practices provide for their farming operations.

“Farmers planting cover crops, so they can reduce carbon dioxide in the air and get paid for doing it”

Joe Biden
46th President of the USA

“With carbon farming, climate action becomes a business opportunity”

Frans Timmermans
Executive Vice President of the European Union

"By managing soil to store higher levels of carbon, farmers and land managers can play a critical role in achieving net zero. To make this viable from a farm livelihood perspective, there need to be financial incentives at scale that pay farmers to sequester carbon."
