Carbon farming involves implementing practices that are known to improve the rate at which carbon is removed from the atmosphere. Carbon farming is successful when carbon gains resulting from enhanced land management and/or conservation practices exceed carbon losses.
Large companies looking to offset their environmental impact because of environmental oversight or because of consumer pressure are searching for carbon credits. They are turning to agriculture for credits to purchase that support farmers in transitioning to practices that reduce emissions and enrich the soil.
These practices vary for every operation, but can include:
- Reducing tillage
- Planting cover crops
- Increasing biodiversity
Our Compeer Carbon Access program has partnered with experts in the carbon market to help farmers on the practices that can help generate the best credits to their operation. Our partners use registry-approved methodology, data collection and modeling to produce credits with the greatest accuracy of measurement.
Contact your local financial officer or insurance officer to find out how carbon markets can benefit your operation.
