1) Too much CO2 in our atmosphere, 416ppm in 2020
2) Too little carbon in our soils, globally a fall of 60%
We develop products to capture carbon from the atmosphere on a gigatonne scale and return it to the soil. This improves soil health and allows farmers to trade a new commodity - carbon offsets.
A Second Crop
Carbon trading markets are growing. Both compliance and voluntary markets offer opportunities for farmers to generate significant extra income. However, they are currently not suitable for most farming businesses. We are creating platforms specifically built for farmers, giving them the highest possible price and most transparent market for their Second Crop, carbon.
Australian farmers Mick and Guy, came together in 2016 to launch a not-for-profit research institute. They worked on ways to increase soil carbon in a form that is easy to adopt, scalable, and economically attractive for farmers. To make a difference on a global scale, we launched Soil Carbon Co, a unique purpose-led business that delivers returns to farmers, investors and the environment.
Today Soil Carbon Co. is a team made up of world-leading scientists, driven entrepreneurs and committed partners. We are backed by some brilliant forward-thinking investors - but the planet remains our biggest shareholder.
