The climate clock is ticking, and immediate action is necessary, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Agriculture must transition from being part of the problem to being a cornerstone of the solution. As the ongoing story of sustainability unfolds, agriculture is a key player and potential hero.

At Agoro Carbon, we are actively working to make this narrative a reality. Our journey is not just about innovation — but also about hope, transformation and collective action towards a regenerative future.

We have taken this challenge to heart. Agoro Carbon is leading the way in shifting towards regenerative agriculture, which can reduce and reverse the carbon footprint of traditional farming practices.

The power of regeneration

Our mission is clear: to unlock the carbon-capturing superpowers of the soil. Through initiatives such as Agoro Carbon's Cropland and Pastureland Programs, we are changing the game in agriculture by helping our program participants adopt practices that increase carbon sequestration and improve soil health, water quality and biodiversity. This is not just about farming differently — it's also reimagining the role of agriculture in our ecological story.

Our commitment goes beyond just carbon. We are addressing the pressing issues of soil degradation, water conservation and biodiversity loss. Our vision is a world where agriculture enriches our planet in every way possible way.

What sets us apart is our unwavering dedication to science-based solutions. Our team of agronomists and scientists ensures that our carbon credits are credible and contribute meaningfully to global carbon reduction goals. We have a robust framework in place, backed by physical soil samples and precise modeling, to ensure the accuracy and integrity of our carbon sequestration efforts.

Empowering farmers, transforming agriculture

Our partners — farmers, and ranchers, benefit from the support of our Grower Success Team. This team — composed of highly experienced agronomists — plays a crucial role in making our carbon program participant-centered. They simplify the carbon generation process, coordinate soil sampling, and communicate carbon measurements. The Grower Success Team helps our producers navigate the complexities of carbon credit generation.

Agoro Carbon is deeply committed to empowering the custodians of our enrolled lands. We merge sustainability with profitability, providing the tools, knowledge and financial support necessary for a thriving agricultural future. Our goal is to create a mutually beneficial relationship between agriculture and the planet.

Real stories from our participants illustrate the impact of our programs.

Brian Miller, an Indiana farmer, sums it up: "Agoro Carbon ensures our success, which in turn, benefits the environment." Montana rancher Chad Dolbear's experience showcases the tangible benefits of our support: "With Agoro Carbon's help, I've improved water access on my ranch, which has led to better rotational grazing, increased plant diversity, and healthier cattle."

These stories demonstrate the essence of our mission: sustainability as a pathway to success, both for farmers and for the environment.

Collaborating for a greener tomorrow

Our journey is one of collaboration by forging partnerships with businesses that share our vision for a regenerative future. These companies are not just compensating for their carbon footprint — they’re contributing to a larger movement that benefits the planet, the consumer and the agricultural community.

Our vision is grand, but our approach is meticulous. With over 2 million acres already enrolled, leading to the removal of over 7 million tons of carbon over the next decade, and $15 million already paid to our participants, every acre, every farmer and every credit sold is a step towards an agricultural system that sustains our world without depleting it. This is the legacy Agoro Carbon is building.

Catalyzing climate action toward net-zero

Agoro Carbon offers an urgent solution that aligns with the principles set by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and the Oxford Net-Zero framework. Our projects represent a comprehensive approach to climate action that matches the scale of the challenge before us.

The climate crisis demands action that goes beyond the conventional. The commitment from companies to invest in climate solutions toward net-zero at a scale that matches this crisis is currently insufficient. Agoro Carbon envisions a world where corporations are committed to achieving science-based targets and using the significant power of high-quality carbon credits as a tool to reach these targets.

This approach is crucial for achieving both short-term and long-term science-based targets. Investing in Agoro Carbon credits signifies real quantifiable climate benefits and generates additional co-benefits for people and nature. We champion a proactive stance towards climate action.

The newly updated Oxford Offsetting Principles underscore the significance of biological storage solutions, such as enhancing soil carbon, in combating climate change. Agoro Carbon's initiatives exemplify the vital importance of these methods by offering scalable immediate carbon storage capabilities, alongside benefits such as improved biodiversity, ecosystem services and societal resilience.

Agoro Carbon is paving the way for agriculture to be a force for good. We believe that the key to a sustainable future lies beneath our feet, in the power of our soils to heal the planet. By embracing regenerative agriculture and supporting nature-based solutions, we can confront the climate crisis head-on. This is an invitation to be part of the solution, to invest in a future where agriculture plays a pivotal role in healing our planet.
