    How Market+ Source works

    1: Measure

    We capture on-farm sustainability practices and primary data directly from farmers to calculate GHG reductions, carbon intensity, and other metrics for specific crops produced within your company’s value chain.​

    2: Monitor

    Utilizing advanced satellite imagery, field sensors, automated event capture, and farm practice documentation, our MRV technology and program methodology validate practice adoption and ensure that real environmental benefits are achieved, for accurate Scope 3 claims reporting.​

    3: Mobilize

    We work directly with farmers and agribusiness/co-op partners to catalyze change in your specific supply chain, including tracking crop delivery. Farmers earn a premium for their sustainably grown crops delivered into your supply chain.​

    Exceeding goals with

    High-quality rice has been a core ingredient of Anheuser-Busch beers for more than a century. Our partnership demonstrates how sustainable agriculture programs can meet consumer demands for climate positive products while also enabling growers to increase their profitability.

    Indigo Ag’s sustainable rice program has been a true testament of the many successes of a farmer – buyer relationship. Defining clear objectives and working with the talented Indigo team to harness farmers’ potential has been such a rewarding experience in the rice industry. Sustainable production practices and data validation are critical to protecting our license to operate and the exciting piece of it all is that the farmers can implement strategies to reduce their inputs and footprint, all while earning a premium for their efforts. This is a program that should set the industry standard for growing rice in critical or at-risk areas.

    Supporting farmers in adopting regenerative practices with The North Face

    The North Face is working towards science-based targets including that 100% of the top materials for apparel will be recycled, regeneratively sourced, or responsibly sourced by 2025. To help achieve this goal, The North Face worked with Indigo to source cotton grown with farming practices that prioritize soil health and environmental stewardship, such as no-till and cover crops, as well as purchasing agricultural carbon credits.

    As the first apparel brand to partner with Indigo, we are excited about the positive environmental impacts regenerative cotton production can have not only for The North Face products, but for our industry as a whole. Regenerative products have the ability to shift the industry from simply ‘doing less harm’ to actually replenishing or having a positive impact on nature and resources, and as a brand that is committed to protecting the outdoor places we love to play, we believe this is another critical step in addressing climate change impacts in our supply chain.
