Advancing Agriculture to Address Climate Change

There's a scalable climate solution where farmers are the heroes. It’s backed by technology, driven by innovation, and supports sustainability across the supply chain. It will differentiate your environmental and social good strategy.

Invest in the Farming We Need

By adopting beneficial practices, farmers can reduce and sequester carbon dioxide, while enriching their soil. Your brand can directly support the farmers starting to act on this unique, scalable climate solution that will continue to advance with deployment and ongoing scientific collaboration.

Monitor. Quantify.
Verify. Reward.

Indigo worked with the Climate Action Reserve and Verra – through their Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) program – to help develop innovative methodologies for monitoring, quantifying, verifying, and reporting net on-farm greenhouse gas emissions reductions and removals. The methodologies are the first to allow for affordable long-term monitoring of on-farm emissions, abatement, and carbon removal.

Catalyzing Carbon Farming

Adopting practices such as cover crops and reduced tillage can improve the health of farmers’ soil, their bottom line, and ultimately the planet. By investing in Indigo Carbon, you are providing the financing to help make that possible.

Unlocking the potential of agriculture


Indigo Carbon supports farmers in their transition to more sustainable practices, delivering technological solutions and sponsor investments to reduce and sequester carbon dioxide into agricultural soils.

Step 1

Farmers can earn additional revenue by farming carbon

Through Indigo Carbon, farmers are provided with the tools, services, and support to adopt regenerative practices such as cover crops and reduced tillage. These practices can enrich their soil with carbon drawn down from the atmosphere and reduce emissions.

Step 2

Quality credits are validated by data

Net changes in on-farm emissions – generated through stored carbon in the soil and reduced greenhouse gas emissions – are measured and reported by Indigo and will be verified by independent, accredited, third-party auditors.

Step 3

We register the environmental benefits

Indigo registers the net greenhouse gas emissions reductions and removals with VCS  and the Climate Action Reserve to create a carbon credit – an asset available to be purchased that represents one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalents sequestered or emissions reduced.

Step 4

Your company connects with the farmer’s work directly

Organizations purchase carbon credits generated directly by these farmers, which further accelerates the scale of impact.
