The global importance of mitigating the environmental impact of human activities is growing, and carbon projects have emerged as a vital tool to achieve this goal. Landowners and farmers are essential stakeholders in these projects, as they provide the land on which these projects are implemented.
Carbon projects generate credits for storing CO2 in soil and vegetation, providing landowners and farmers with a sustainable source of income to support their families and communities.
Carbon projects boost soil health and water security, enhancing fertility and retention to improve crop yields for farmers and landowners.
Carbon projects help farmers adopt more sustainable land management practices, which benefit the environment by protecting natural habitats and boosting biodiversity.
We have an expert team that designs, develops, implements, and monitors our carbon projects with you based on your farm management data.
Participate in a DGB carbon farming project, or contact us if you are interested in investing in such a project.
Based on your land and farm management, we create data-driven plans for implementation.
We apply models to establish a baseline of soil organic carbon on your land and the carbon sequestration potential through planned regenerative applications.
The amount will depend on your land’s data and nature, but increasing the carbon in your soil is profitable.
Landowners and farmers play a critical role in carbon projects and have much to gain from participating in these projects. From increased income to improved soil fertility and supporting biodiversity, carbon projects provide many benefits that can help support farmers and their communities. If you are a farmer or landowner, consider participating in a carbon project to unlock the full potential of your land and make a positive impact on the environment. Join the carbon farming revolution today.
"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 world-class experts. Basically, we streamline the entire process for sustainable income so that farmers can focus on what they're good at: farming."
"In return for wildlife-friendly land management, you can obtain long-term 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 landowners can participate in carbon offsetting by capturing and storing emissions. Farmers and landowners can start earning sustainable, practical incomes with DGB, the biggest project developer in the Netherlands."

Carbon projects capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. The amount of CO2 captured is then verified and sold through carbon credits.
Our expert team of ecologists and biologists run a feasibility study on the land.
Project managers design the project and set up timelines for implementation.
The project is verified by an independent verification body.
The carbon offsets created by the project can be sold as carbon credits, generating an income.
These are the projects we are successfully running with landowners and investors.
The Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration project aims to rapidly restore the declining chimpanzee habitat in Bulindi, Uganda, through active afforestation and community involvement.
This investment, in what is a sustainable forest management process, also helps conserve water in one of Kenya’s key catchment areas.
The project has multiple locations, however, most of the trees are planted in three villages in the Yoko Sub Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon, spanning an area of 2,300–3,000 hectares.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 landowners understand how much carbon their land can sequester each year.
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.
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 tonnes/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.
