    Returns from carbon

    Our experts will report you on the best actions and which solutions will give you the best financing options. You will receive a one-time capital payment to start the project.

    Practical income and long-term funding with carbon farming

    Under a Conservation Bank Agreement, we pay farmers, landowners, and conservation organizations per hectare per year for a 30-year contract, and we assess how the habitat banks function in accordance with the aims of a Biodiversity Management Plan. We also give landowners a practical income and long-term funding without affecting their land title.

    DGB will provide various types of resources through several pathways. Start where you are and receive support to accelerate climate action in your city. 

    Improved agricultural productivity

    Farmers start benefit from productivity improvements, reduced costs, and improved farm resilience with the Impact of production efficiency.

    Better soil health and decreased salinity

    A study on agroecology across 57 countries, found increased productivity on 12.6 million farms with an average crop yield increase of 79%.

    Why Carbon Farming with Dutch Green?

    "In return for wildlife-friendly land management, you can obtain long-term and guaranteed incomes as a landowner where management and costs are defined by you. Your land's ownership is untouched. In addition to the established management plan, there are no statutory designations or access requirements. Farmers and ranchers can participate in carbon offsetting by capturing and storing emissions. All the farmers, ranchers can start earning sustainable practical incomes with DGB that biggest project developer in The Netherlands."

    "We know the vital role of farmers and understand that they have limited capacity to navigate this new journey alone. Our main goal is to provide developing and sustainable incomes for the future. We do this by creating an additional income stream for the farmer, whereby most of the carbon income is allocated directly to the farmer, while the soil becomes healthier thanks to the analysis and innovative practices of our word-class experts. Basically, we streamline the entire process for sustainable income so that farmers can focus on what they're good at: farming."

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the requirements for lands?

    We support all farmers who are willing to adopt more sustainable farming methods. We provide value for every farmer. Just show us the land, and we'll come up with ways to help you. DGB will partner with you to adopt good practices for your farm and help you get paid for the credits you generate. Examples include adding cover crops, reducing tillage, and other methods that benefit your soil and bottom line as well as our planet. Through DGB, the increased soil carbon sequestration and reduced greenhouse gas emissions from these practices generate registry-issued carbon credits, which are increasingly in demand by major corporations. 

    What are the farmer's responsibilities?

    DGB covers credit verification and soil sampling costs, and we act as your committed partner in actively working to connect with buyers and sell credits at premium market prices. Our expert team will support your carbon journey with five-year contracts and tailor-made agronomic support. Together, we'll get the most value from carbon farming long-term, both from carbon credit income and soil health improvements. So basically, farmers do the farming and we handle the rest.

    How much can farmer get paid?

    Prices vary based on farm location and size. However, growers are always guaranteed a minimum payment per carbon credit. Please contact us and tell us what you have available, and we'll create a tailor-made offer for the farm

    What does it take to apply and start a project?

    Very little. Just give us your coordinates, and we'll take care of the rest. We do not require upfront fees or acreage minimums to participate. Cutting-edge technology, a data-driven approach and third-party verification ensure that DGB can rapidly start and accelerate projects. 

    How do farmers store carbon in soil?

    As plants in the field grow, they naturally absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil through their roots. The amount of carbon stored can depending on the soil type of the land and the climate in which it is located.

    What happens if there is too much carbon in the soil?

    The amount of organic carbon stored in the soil is the sum of the inputs to the soil (plant and animal remains) and the losses from the soil (decomposition, erosion and uptake in plant and animal production). If too much carbon is formed in the soil, this can reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide and improve soil quality.

    Who is selling carbon credits?

    All farmers and landowners can sell carbon credits. Landowners are eligible to receive carbon credits at a rate of one per tonne of CO2 to landowners. DGB helps land owners understand how much carbon their land can sequester each year

    How much does it cost to run a carbon farm?

    It will require some upfront investment and can result in a temporary reduction in productivity. However, after two years, you will earn more as an organic farmer and receive income from carbon credits.

    How much is a carbon credit worth today?

    Prices for carbon credits vary continuously and depend on many factors. As of September 2021, a carbon credit trades for around $16 per metric ton of carbon dioxide stored.  It’s important to note that as more businesses adopt net-zero goals, the price of carbon offsets is expected to surge in the coming years. In fact, several recent studies predict that carbon credit prices will increase by ten-fold by in the next decade, and likely more.  To put things into perspective: A landowner’s farm or ranch land can absorb between 0.5 and >5 ton/ac/yr depending on location, soil type, and the tree canopy. This means the possibility to make as much as $1,000,000 per year on one thousand acres of land by 2030. Remember, though, that there's always a premium for custom projects like ours. This link lets you see the current carbon credit prices in realtime.
