Research of existing business models to valorise carbon sequestration now online
It is becoming increasingly clear which farming techniques have the biggest potential of improving carbon sequestration on agricultural soils and that this potential and suitability of the different techniques is region-specific.
To put these techniques successfully into practice, a significant return on investment has to be guaranteed for farmers and other stakeholders investing time and money in these techniques. Therefore, economic and ecological viable business models using carbon sequestration need to be defined first. This will allow us to utilise the potential of carbon farming to green the food supply chain, restore the organic composition of the soil, increase biodiversity and store atmospheric carbon.
For this, we made an inventory of existing business models that can be used as an example and source of inspiration for future similar initiatives, with initiators in four different domains: the farmer himself, chain partners, companies outside the chain and (local) government.
