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 company's 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 company 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.
