Messaging and Reality are Misaligned for Soil Carbon Sequestration

April 27, 2020 | State of the Market Report

Carbon sequestration remains an important area of developing sustainability across a range of industries but solutions typically require industrial processes. Soil carbon sequestration (SCS) relies on soil processes to transfer atmospheric carbon dioxide to the soil through plants, plant residues, and other organic solids. Momentum towards monetizing SCS and its associated farming practices is driven by the need to support the soil health of arable land. With recent high-profile initiatives emerging including Indigo's Carbon program and Nori's Carbon Now collaboration with Locus Agriculture Solutions and early assessment of this future opportunity is critical. This report provides an overview of the emerging industry, presents the major players, and analyzes the aforementioned initiatives to identify challenges and give you a unbiased opinion on SCS programs.
