Scaling Regenerative Agriculture in Europe to Protect Climate and Biodiversity

Wide scale carbon removal’s project to improve yield security and regenerate local ecosystems


Protecting and supporting biodiversity with carbon removal credits that go beyond CO₂

Regenerative agriculture projects go beyond reducing and removing CO₂ by fostering a thriving, diverse ecosystem. With the integration of regenerative methods like cover crops and flowering strips, farmers enrich biodiversity, both above and beneath the soil, this project supports farmers that want to protect and enhance life on their farms, and contribute to the sustainable transformation of agriculture.

The project’s removal of C02 is generated from soil carbon sequestration through regenerative agriculture methods, such as improved crop rotations and organic fertilisation, as well as the avoidance of natural soil organic carbon depletion compared to a business-as-usual scenario. C02 reduction is generated by farmers actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions in agricultural field management through the implementation of more efficient practices. These practices include lowering nitrogen fertiliser usage, minimising pesticides, and adopting less intensive tillage.

Climate Benefits and Community Impact

The project provides biodiversity benefits by supporting farmers, enriching soil and protecting ecosystems together with sustainable co-benefits for the local communities and includes:



Soil is not only fundamental to our food supply, but its significance extends further. Acting as a key player in the carbon cycle, it holds three times the amount of carbon as the atmosphere. Through regenerative practices and technology, the project restores agricultural soil’s potential as a carbon sink as well as protecting and enhancing biodiversity.



The project creates real sustainable impact with climate strategies that work hand in hand with biodiversity protection and contribute to the sustainable transformation of agriculture as well as supporting farmers to protect and enhance life on their farms.



The project has established a farmer vesting scheme, withholding 25% of payments to ensure farmers’ ongoing engagement, and set aside 25% of credits as a permanence buffer against potential reversals, calculated based on the Verra AFOLU risk tool. Additionally, education and knowledge is continuously shared to reinforce farmers’ commitment to regenerative practices, emphasising the long-term benefits of regenerative agriculture for the productivity of their farms.
