What is carbon farming?

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 environmental impacts.

How does carbon farming benefit the environment?

Carbon farming offers a range of valuable benefits. It enhances soil health by improving fertility and structure, thereby promoting more productive and sustainable agricultural practices. It contributes to biodiversity conservation by restoring ecosystems, creating a favorable environment for wildlife. Moreover, it has a positive impact on water quality, benefiting both the environment and human health. Carbon farming supports sustainable agriculture, making farming practices more profitable and environmentally friendly. It allows farmers to earn income, further incentivising sustainable practices. Carbon farming enhances the resilience of agriculture, ensuring its long-term sustainability.

Benefitting nature 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. 

Why invest in carbon farming?

1

Financial returns

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.

2

Biodiversity and land restoration

Investing in carbon farming supports the restoration of degraded land, ecosystems, and habitats, increasing biodiversity and supporting the livelihoods of local communities. 

3

Mitigating carbon emissions

Carbon farming is an effective way to mitigate carbon 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.

Creating sustainable solutions

How do we do it?

We have an expert team that designs, develops, implements, and monitors our carbon projects with you based on your farm management data.

1

Get to know us

Find out more about DGB's carbon farming projects, and contact us if you are interested in participating in such a project.

2

Share your data

Based on your land data and farm management practices, we can evaluate if your land is suitable for a carbon project.

3

Create a master plan

If your land is suitable, we apply models to create a project plan and establish a baseline of soil organic carbon on your land.

4

Sustainable income system

A validated carbon project will provide income which is dependent on your land’s data, size, nature, and other factors.

System management

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 practices

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.

Training and expertise

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.

Data analysis

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.
