DGB invests in and develops carbon farming projects that provide measurable and verifiable solutions that benefit nature, boost biodiversity, help local communities, and reduce CO2 emissions. Our goal is to support the regeneration of land and the return of vibrant ecosystems to our planet.
Carbon farming is an agricultural method that captures atmospheric carbon, storing it in the soil, through land management practices such as regenerative agriculture and reforestation. Carbon farming helps to increase the resilience of natural systems, promote biodiversity, and mitigate the impacts of a changing climate.
Carbon farming provides investors with the opportunity to invest in the future of our planet, with numerous benefits to the environment and your portfolio.
Carbon farming provides investors with the opportunity to invest in the future of our planet, with numerous benefits to the environment and your portfolio. Here are just a few reasons to consider investing in carbon farming.
Investing in carbon-farming projects has the potential to provide significant financial returns. In addition, these projects are low-risk and stable, making them an ideal investment for sustainable long-term growth.
Investing in carbon farming supports the restoration of degraded land and habitats, increasing biodiversity and supporting the livelihoods of local communities.
Carbon farming is an effective way to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions by removing carbon from the atmosphere and storing it in the soil, thereby helping nature flourish and prosper.
We are proud to prove, together with the project landowner, that quality, verified carbon farming from native forest conservation can provide a good economic alternative to deforestation. To avoid further deforestation in Kenya, we need solutions that can be implemented immediately, can be scaled, and are bankable.
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.
System management is an important factor of carbon farming. It includes cropping systems for green manure, compost extracts, utilising livestock, and many other ways to help you manage soil organic carbon while creating a holistic approach with positive feedback loops.
Conventional agriculture includes monoculture cropping, tilling, chemical pesticides, and more. These can have significant negative effects on the soil. Still, within these traditional practices, we’ve found eco-friendly solutions to increase organic carbon and lessen negative environmental impacts.
With the experience and expertise of our team, together with the training they provide to landowners and farmers, crop yields and production can increase. For example, with DGB’s training, farmers can learn to increase their coffee yield per tree from 20 kg to 200 kg.
Soil carbon rates increase due to biological processes and research assisted by analysing data. Our data analysis shows that these biological activities also improve root systems and help plants grow faster.
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.
